A different tortoise

I found this interesting Central African folktale about the tortoise and the eagle accompanied with nice illustrations too. The folktale described Tortoise as kind and generous - a different Tortoise from the West African folktale depictions, but not too different as this tortoise still kept his cunning ability.

Thanks for stopping by our site and giving some love.

Thought I'd let you know that we've got a brand new foltale up this morning about the Marriage of Mouse.

You're welcome.

Read your new folktale - that's a nice one with a possible two-sided message depending on how you look at it.
