Abunuwasi by Gado Swahili Edition
Nuria Ranking: #63 in Fiction and Non Fiction
Full color comic book in Swahili. This 32-page book is a cartoon rendering of three traditional folk tales from the Swahili tradition of the East African coast. Abunuwasi is a character from the “trickster” tradition of African folklore: he finds ways to trick the greedy and the selfish and always wins, and every story has a moral. The stories are funny and clever and Tanzanians and Kenyans have grown up on them for generations.
