This is a folklore story collection for young South African readers. Ten tales, steeped in the imaginative richness of African oral tradition: where did the first stories in the world come from? How did little Tortoise win the respect of all the other animals? Who was Nanana bo Sele Sele and what happened when she built her house in the middle of the animals' road? And, why was young Crocodile so determined to get hold of Monkey's heart?
