The Magic Bojabi Tree
By

Rating
Python has wrapped himself around the melon/mango/pomegranate tree with its delicious fruit, and he won't share the fruit unless the animals can tell him the correct name of the tree. Elephant, Monkey and Zebra each in turn visit Lion, who alone knows the name of the tree. But every time, the animals forget the name on the journey back to the tree. Then Tortoise, the slowest, smallest animal goes to Lion - and sings a special song to remind him of the name. It is the Bojabi Tree! Python unwraps himself from the trunk, and all the animals share a feast.

Reviews

"The African landscapes and creatures are vividly depicted. [...] The repetition and clever use of words make it a super story to read aloud." * Parents in Touch * "A treat to read aloud to children... A book that you will want to return to again and again." * Good Reads, Saviour Pirotta blog * "A delightful present for the younger reader." * Our Book Reviews * "A beautifully illustrated story." * Offspring * "Fabulously evocative illustrations... a humorous journey" * Practical Pre-School * "Featuring humorous, vivid and detailed illustrations which evoke the African landscape with a few strokes of the paintbrush, this is a great book to share with young children... it also gently reinforces the message about listening and remembering." * Reading Zone * "Delightful" * IBBY Link * "A delightful animal folk tale." * Armadillo * "The text flows easily and is excellent for reading aloud, whilst the comic wordplay will engage all the family. The traditional story is lifted by the well- drawn characters who come alive in warm, delicate colours." * Carousel * "A treat to read aloud to children... A book that you will want to return to again and again." * Pirotta Blog * "Packed with humour and brought to life by Piet Grobler's vibrant illustrations... An immensely satisfying tale." * The Independent on Sunday * "I used the tory as a basis for some `storytelling challenges'- simple scenario's to stimulate the children's own stories...It is a good demonstration of what oral stories do best." -- Judith Harries * Early Years Educator *
