Monstrous Myths: Terrible Tales of Africa - Monstrous Myths (Hardback)Clare Hibbert (author)
- We can order this
The myths and legends of Africa are a rich source of storytelling, culture and history. Children will meet characters like Anansi, a crafty jackel and a seven-headed serpent. Some they will be familiar with and some they may discover for the first time!
Told in a humorous style but these books are jam-packed with facts about the beliefs of ancient cultures. A variety of imaginative visual and textual devices are used to great effect. For example, some stories are styled as newspaper reports, while others are made to look like recipes. A series of six books, Monstrous Myths will bring out the humour, horror and heroism of some fantastic stories.
