WHY GIRAFFE HAS A LONG NECK And Other stories

People and wild animals have lived alongside each other for centuries. Animals occupied a special place in the cultures and traditions of the people. This relationship was retold in most African folk tales.

The stories in this collection are inspired by such oral stories which were passed down from one generation to another. They are written in the style of the oral narratives but are based on the author’s imaginative accounts. The reader is thrust into a world of greedy hyenas, jealous giraffes and vengeful cheetahs. Their conflicts and daily struggles mirror a life not different from the reader’s own.
