Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

BaMusa the hatseller travelled from town to town with his hats piled high on his head. "Hee Manum nin koi kadi sa!" he sang, which means, "What a wonderful business hat selling is!"<P>One day, BaMusa set out for a festival that was a day's walk away. He was in such a hurry to leave, he didn't eat any breakfast. Halfway there, he grew so tired and hungry, he had to stop and rest. But when he woke up, his hats were gone. Soon he discovered the monkeys high in the tree branches above him were all wearing colorful hats! How would he get them back? It wasn't until BaMusa put some food in his stomach that he could think clearly and figure out exactly what he must do.<P>Master storyteller Baba Wague Diakite retells this highly entertaining, authentic African teaching tale the way it was told to him when he was a child. And his vibrant, ceramic-tile paintings bring BaMusa, the monkeys, and all the plants and creatures of the fertile African countryside vividly to life.
