Beverley Naidoo places 20 of Aesop’s fables in an African setting and gives them a lyrical retelling that allows the humour to ripple through. She expresses the punch lines of tales in a way that opens up their wisdom rather than their morality. Naidoo’s retelling also has the virtue of total brevity. A world is evoked, a situation unfolded in the space of a page or two. The illustrations are beautiful and reflect Naidoo’s African location of the tales.
