San Tales from Africa
Author: Raffaella Delle Donne
 
Although Raffaella Delle Donne has drawn heavily on the San stories told to Wilhelm Bleek and Lucy Lloyd, the main plots of the stories and most of the characters are original. She feels that children today in southern Africa grow up with Eurocentric fairy tales, or even worse – Disney versions of their African heritage. In recent years, a number of titles based on African myths and legends have been published, but none that concentrate solely on those originating from the San people. San Tales from Africa seeks to redress this imbalance. Kaggen, a mantis who has the ability to change his appearance, dominates the majority of the stories as he begins his quest to find the All-Devourer who has all but destroyed the world as the First People know it. The First People are, in fact, animals and fantastic characters that talk and wear clothes. They also display all the characteristics of humans and are never uniformly good or bad.
