Publisher's Summary

Winner of the British Book Awards, Author of the Year, 2004.
Winner of the CWA Dagger in the Library Award, 2004.

Mma Ramotswe reads the foreword she has written to these tales, then goes on to narrate them all herself, passing them on to us verbally as did her father's aunt to her.

From animal fables to mysterious forces residing in the landscape, this collection demonstrates the wealth and variety of African folk tales and the particular magic of Africa's spiritual roots.

Simple, surprising and humorous, these beautifully rendered tales demonstrate McCall Smith's renowned storytelling skill and his love of Africa. They remain as fresh and vital as in the original idiom.

What the Critics Say

"The author's prose has the merits of simplicity, euphony, and precision...This is the art that conceals art. I haven't read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time." (Sunday Telegraph)
