Colourful, lively illustrations accompany this dual-language Swahili and English edition of Fox Fables.
In Aesop's 'The Fox and the Crane' the fox deliberately serves the crane's dinner on a plate that she cannot eat from. But how will the fox feel when the tables are turned?
Brain triumphs over brawn in the traditional Chinese fable 'King of the Forest' where a clever fox outsmarts a ferocious tiger. If you know the book 'The Gruffalo' you will recognise that part of the story was based on the original traditional version of this tale.
Fox Fables Swahili / English is a high-quality bilingual picture book, suitable both for children who are learning and reading Swahili and English in parallel and those being introduced to Swahili or English as a second language.
The text in this story is not simplified in any way so would be best suited to parents and/or children who already have a reasonable grasp of the language.
