Formats & editions


A brand new collection of African folktales for Puffin Classics

A collection of ten hugely entertaining stories, drawn from the rich folklore of many countries throughout Africa, and brought sparklingly to life with humour and poetry by Ghanaian author, Nii Ayikwei Parkes. Find out how selfish Lion gets his comeuppance, how Tortoise gets his cracked shell, discover the days when the earth's creatures were all mixed up and much more in these brilliantly crafted tales, all of which reflect the very best and the very worst of human behaviour.

The book includes endnotes with a glossary, additional information as well as ideas for activities that children can do to explore the stories further.
