Format: Paperback, 96 pages, 3rd Revised Edition
Other Information: Illustrated
Published In: South Africa, 01 March 2015
A stunning new cover, design and format brings African Myths & Legends, a combination of two earlier publications (Daughter of the moonlight and Other African Tales and South African Myths and Legends), to life. It is a spellbinding and fascinating collection of tales that will enliven the imagination of young readers. Vividly illustrated, the book sustains the intrigue of storytelling that has been passed on from generation to generation. The magic lies in deciding whether the stories are fact or fiction. The book offers an explanation for the mysteries people encountered in their ordinary daily lives and the norms and social practices that have emerged from these events. Using historical events as a backdrop, yet weaving in fantasy and magic, these extraordinary tales are not only interesting but also highly informative and educational.
