Author Nick Greaves continues the ancient tradition of storytelling by recounting the myths and legends of southern African tribes. Aimed at 7-12 year olds, the nineteen stories in this volume introduce a magical cast of characters, from a feisty buck, greedy vultures and a bewitched crocodile to an arrogant bat and the perpetually crafty hare. The collection of tales is a delightful addition to the successful series by the author, including When Hippo was Hairy, When Lion Could Fly, When Elephant was King, and When Bat was a Bird.
