The Guinea Fowl and the Crocodile - Signed Copy

The Guinea Fowl and the Crocodile - Signed Copy


This folktale from Benin tells the story of two friends, a guinea fowl and a crocodile. Or at least they were friends. Will they remain so by the end? Read the book to find out! The story, as told by Mathieu Sourou ZINSOU teaches us to be cautious and to avoid the pitfalls that may come from both our enemies and those who claim to be our friends.

The Books that Bind project was produced through a grant from the United States Embassy in Cotonou, Benin with the goal of creating local language reading materials for people of all ages. Each of the stories in the series were first recounted by storytellers, and then translated into five of the Beninese languages as well as French and English.

This limited edition softcover copy was signed by members of the team in Benin who participated in the project.
