Abstract
This series of four booklets may be my first find from East Africa. This volume has seven stories with one illustration apiece. The first tale, Nguu and his sons, is the Aesopic tale of the treasure. It may lose the story's possible ambiguity when the father says he has forgotten where the treasure is hidden. Disappointed after digging, one brother suggests that they plant the fields. The third story substitutes a lion for the bear in Aesop's TB. The final story, The Cock and the Lion, gives an etiology for the phenomenon known in the Aesopic corpus that lions dislike cocks.
