Yimulimuli and the dragon

and other wonderful tales of Senegal


It is night in Lower Casamance, by the light of the bonfire some words are heard in Diola: "I am going to tell a story."  "We're listening to you," those who know respond in chorus, gathering around the fire. And stories about dragons, pythons and baobabs, about mermaids are told. 

This book brings together 7 wonderful stories that we have chosen from a lot of stories told in the night of Senegal in their mother tongue.  

But this book is more than just a book. If you want to know what there are 

behind these stories, go up and enter our Read with Africa project.

We leave you the story of The mermaid daughter  (p. 37  of our book) told by the Diatta family in the language, of the city of Boukout by Fina Hernández Gordillo.
