Publisher’s Description: 

MANDELA/FAVORITE AFRICAN FOLKTALES"It is my wish that the voice of the storyteller may never die in Africa," writes Nelson Mandela. Accompanied by dozens of specially commissioned color paintings, the 32 tales Mandela has selected hail from countries as far-flung as Morocco, Nigeria, Uganda, and Kenya. They include Africa’s oldest stories, as well as a few new ones, and several creation myths. Whether warning children about the dangers of disobedience or demonstrating that the underdog can win, each has a universal message for humankind. 144 pp.
