    Nonsense This was pure nonsense. The stories didn't make much sense to me and seemed to focus on tortoises. Couldn't finish it because these fables just weren't entertaining. Wonder what part of Africa these stories were taken from.

    Neat stories. Very simple read. Maybe children's level. I like these stories. They are very simple though but do give some insight to midges of thought and cultures in Africa.

    A nice, quick, and enjoyable read. The language is simple enough for children to understand, but the stories are entertaining for adults as well.

I'm now looking forward to reading the complete collection of tales, also conveniently published by Dover under the title 'West African Folk Tales' (ISBN: 0486427641).
