I first encountered this tale almost ten years ago. I heard Teju tell it at the Natural history Museum in Chicago. I was exposed to several different variants before I found Leo and Diane Dillon’s wonderful picture book. The version that appears on this CD is a synthesis of the stories I heard with my own style thrown in for good measure. This is a fun story to share and I hope you will join me as I tell it.
This track is featured on Donna’s CD, ‘Fun, Foolery, and Folktales’. It is family friendly and great for smaller children.
