Koi and the Kola Nuts

In this humorous African folktale, Koi wants the villagers to honor him as befits the son of a chief. But unless he can accomplish three impossible tasks, he will end up in the cooking pot instead. His problems begin with a scrawny Kola tree, and they end when three unlikely new friends - a snake, an ant, and an alligator - save his life and help him find his rightful place in the world. This powerful adaptation captures the rich textures and folk imagery of African culture.
