Chinye author Obi Onyefulu

Enchantingly retold in this traditional West African story of goodness greed and a treasure house of gold.. I know I have read a European version of this story where the good sister falls down a well and works hard for the woman she finds there and is rewarded with gold while the evil sister tries to do the same but is too lazy to work and ends up with tar as I recall In this Nigerian version it is magic gourds that bring riches or poverty according to the behavior of the two sisters Vivid water color illustrations show both people and animals with wide appealing eyes The text reads smoothly and would make a great read aloud for older children The concept may be a bit challenging for the pre school set
