Read full description of the books:



Why the Crab Has No Head: An African Tale by Barbara Knutson retells the African folktale from the Bakongo people of Zaire in which crab's pride influences his creator, Nzambi Mpungu, who leaves crab without a head to keep him humble, after seeing how proud crab is acting. The text is framed with patterns of animals, birds, and geometric designs.

Knutson's illustrations are drawn in black and white, with each page framed in patterns of geometric designs. My favorite images include leopard & lizard, elephant, crab, warthog & buffalo & bushbuck & guineafowl, and all the animals.

This is an simple but elegant telling of a creation myth. While it displays African storytelling style, it does not reveal too much about the Bakongo people. Some readers may prefer folktales with more colorful illustrations, or may be expecting to see colors as shown on the cover.

For ages 5 to 8, crab, creation myth, animals, Africa, multicultural, folktales, pride, humility and fans of Barbara Knutson.
