Gathers together a rich and varied selection of tales from Africa. Here are stories of the Great Greedy Beast, who gobbled up an entire village; the naughty Weasel-Boy, whose luck is far better than he deserves; the crazy, mixed-up world of Wrong Way Round Country, and other tales comical and terrifying, worldly-wise and nonsensical from many different African nations. Several of these stories have been produced on BBC TV’s Jackanory, and every one of them is wonderfully suited for reading aloud.
