The Tortoise and Other Animals Chuks Emele read online review & book description:

The Tortoise and Other Animals by Chuks L. Emele is the first of a children's series launched by The New Gong Publishers to help combat the dearth of the African perspective in children’s stories. In this book targeted at children of nursery and  primary school age, Emele recalls some of the folktales he heard from his mother as retained in his memory. These traditional Igbo folktales do have varying forms and narratives, and none can necessarily be said to be the authentic, final version given the public nature of the art, by which it changes form and content depending on the milieu.  What Emele has done in this first installment of The New Gong’s Children’s Series, is to render as best as he can in English, the folktales he heard in his native Igbo as a child.
