These stories, by the well-known children’s writer Marguerite Poland, draw on the rich and varied folk traditions of four southern African peoples: San (The Wood-ash Stars), Xhosa (Nombulelo), Tsonga (Tobane and the Watermelon), and Zulu (Child of the Doves). They are not folk tales retold, however, but original stories inspired by African world-views. The illustrations by Shanne Altshuler match the stories in their liveliness and imagination, and in their carefully researched detail.
