About the book
This beautifully illustrated collection of stories from one of the world's richest story-telling traditions are ideal for young readers and for reading aloud to 7-11 year-olds.
These exciting stories are about tricks and magic, cunning heroes and wicked villains, and the threats of terrifying ghosts.
Each story is introduced with information about its origins and the people who first started telling it, and maps locate the places associated with it. The book includes a glossary and sources of further information as well as ideas for activities that children can do to explore the stories and their culture further.
Retold by an experienced writer of stories for the young, this is a book to inform and entertain in equal measure.
This book is a re-issue of STORIES FROM WEST AFRICA in the MULTICULTURAL STORIES series.
