This was an amazing modern read that will someday turn into a classic This is of a true story telling mode that brings many parts of Africa together with the adventures of two young girls and an array of jungle friends Some are mischievous and some of ornery, but all in all, the rich array of stories make for a nice bedtime story, a great book for the classroom and even a better book for a pediatricians office truly I think one of my favorite tales in when the Hippo was burned by fire so when he found water he decided that this would be his new home because he didn t tolerate the heat well It s whimsical for a young reader to find themselves at a zoo or animal park, for they will have the memory of these stories yet wonder if their habitat came about because of the fables within this book It s a nice mix of truths and fibs The tales fables truly come in all shapes and sizes and they are as different as day and night, and you definitely can t read just one without wanting to read them all A fun book with a collection of folklore from Africa Kids would love this book Great illustrations too.
