KIRKUS REVIEW

The title story, which also appears in Kathleen Arnott's African Myths and Legends (1962) and is similar to the Irish "Billy Beg and the Bull," is accompanied here by four brief, moderately entertaining animal tales (one featuring the well-known Ananse the spider) and decorated with woodcuts in an emphatic African manner. The simple style, large print, and handsome appearance make this an acceptable addition for younger readers, but there is no scarcity of fuller, more compelling, African collections.
