Why Monkeys Live in Trees and Other Stories from Benin (Children's)
by Raouf Mama

Curbstone Press (2006)

USD$12.95

This is a book for both young and old lovers of folklore. Why Monkeys Live in Trees and Other Stories from Benin is a rich tapestry of oral tales that come from a wide range of Beninese ethnic groups. They include trickster tales as well as sacred tales, involving the greatest and meanest of mankind. These ageless stories remind us of the power of love, the perils of greed and pride, and the redemptive virtues of courage, humility, and kindness.
