This collection of folklore tales from Southern Africa is as complex, full of villains and morals to be learned as any fairy tale from another continent. What I liked most about this book is how animals can talk and humans can change form – just like I like my fairy tales. The prose immerses the reader in the tale, making one smell the rain on the hot veld.
