Listen to the full collection of Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales.
Aspiring author, classic literature scholar, fantasy and horror junkie, all wrapped up in a cute little package.
The Nelson Mandela Favorite Folklore are incredible, and indescribably charming. I cannot recommend these stories enough for children or adults who wish to learn more about African Folklore. I recommend getting all the stories, which will run you less than taking your family to the movies. The narrators are brilliant and bring these tales to life.
Yet another great story that I could listen over and over again. Brilliant and unforgettable performance from Alan Rickman.
"Alan Rickman's voice (*****)"
I bought the stories because of Alan Rickman's voice. He really should make more audio books!
The stories are lovely too and I will be gifting these to my niece who is a big Severus Snape fan. :)
