Description

When the Rat found a trap in the grain store, he knew he’d have to outwit the farmer to get his supper that night… A collection of classic African tales in the style of Just So Stories and Arabian Nights, published for the first time in the UK by Ragged Bears.

‘The stories are beautifully written, combining richness of language with moral content and explanations about why the natural world is so. They are perfect for reading aloud.’ JUNIOR EDUCATION

‘These ten tales have retained a very African feel. Each has a particular resonance when read aloud and a recognisable moral message; traditional illustrations, in earthy colours, give each distinction and an identity of it’s own.’ CAROUSEL
