Journal Entry 7 by wingFlutterbies9wing at Meare, Somerset United Kingdom on Thursday, January 13, 2022
This is a book I have read previously, in fact, I've added my previous journal entry here.

I did like this book. It is a fascinating series of morality tales told from an almost folklore viewpoint but with a layer of more modern sophistication. It was good to see so many of the tales held recognisable moral traits although told from an African background. AMS has an obvious twist to render these stories in terms that the western hemisphere can relate to and yet still keep them authentic. I think he succeeded well with this book and several of the tales are still resonating within my head. Fascinating stuff.

It will probably go out into the world in another bookbox. Well worth a read.
