Great story

I love this story and have the book. I don't love the narrator, unfortunately, though.

Check Out Bobby Norfolk's Version of this Story!

This story is performed also by the amazing storyteller, Bobby Norfolk on "Norfolk Tales." My children (4&6) adore him. He brings this and many other tales to life in an extremely exciting and entertaining way.

Simple and Enjoyable

Love these image books... even though I'm an adult. They work great for my kids and this one I personally like watching again & again.

We have listened to again and again

I let my 4 yr old pick out a couple of new books every month and some are hits and misses but this one was definitely a hit. He has listened to it several time and still likes it. The narrator does an amazing job of bringing the native African story to life. The sound effects in it and the music tie in so well. I know we will be looking for more by the author and narrator.
