Koi and the Kola Nuts

Koi and the Kola Nuts




In this Swahili tale, the son of a village chief finds his rightful place in the world

In this humorous African folktale, young Koi leaves home when the people of his village refuse to pay him the homage befitting a chief's son. Upon his arrival at a neighboring village, young Koi finds himself facing a cooking pot unless he, with the help of some unlikely new friends, can fulfill three difficult tasks. Illustrator Reynold Ruffins has created vivid pictures that draw knowingly on native motifs.
