Voice in the Forest

“Dr. Efua Sutherland has once again rescued a couple of folktale mores from our oral traditions and brilliantly merged and polished them into a truly wondrous gem of a tale for young people, as well as the young at heart. This new and dynamic rendering makes some ancient world wisdom accessible to today’s children.” Ama Ata Aidoo, 2006

Voice in the Forest draws upon the traditional fairy tales and folktales of Ghana. Unlike most traditional tales which seek to explain one thing, this story explains several things and practices; the mandatory rest day for farmers, the founding of a village and why calling children bad names is wrong. It’s ambitious. And yet it captures and holds a child’s attention so completely.

The illustrations, by Ralph Sutherland, are just stunning. Stunning.

Voice in the Forest is a fantastic story.

Suitable for upper primary pupils and children between 9 and 11 years (class 4 to 6).
