    A uite interesting collection of about 20 traditional stories from the Fon people in the author's native Benin Each one is only about four pages long and each one has a note at the end where Dr Mama explains the moral of the story and what it says about Fon culture What I found very interesting is how similar many of the tales are to Western fairy tales such as Cinderella etc This book was in the children's section of the library and certainly children would love it but it would be of interest to adults too particularly those wanting to learn about African culture I hadn't known anything about the Fon before I read this hadn't even heard of them but Dr Mama's notes were revealing and made me want to learn

    This was a joy to read I hope these stories do not get lost with time and I appreciate the author's diligence in collecting them and sharing them I like to read folk tales from around the world and sometimes the stories in the collections can get a bit tedious and sort of blur together but I did not find that at all here The stories were distinct and uniue they were comical sometimes dark and had lovely morals I am not sure I always agreed with some of the authors changes to the stories but he notes them all afterwards so you can decide for yourself

    Well there is nothing like a good imagination I always like folktales Of course the titles story got my attention because goats really do smell bad But I don’t think I could’ve made of that reason Sometimes I wonder where these folktale story tellers get their ideas They’re pretty good The other story that intrigue me was the king who would be God I thought OK what’s that about I won’t give away any secrets because overall this is a pretty good book and it kept me engaged I really should read folktales It is a nice break from heavier reading

    A collection of folk tales of the Fon people in West Africa I picked it up because my sister is a Peace Corps volunteer in Benin and it proved to be an entertaining collection of fables Rated 4 because the authortranslator changed a few of the traditional endings which I believe really changed those stories' feel If you happen to find a copy read it Yogbo the Glutton awaits
