Misoso : once upon a time tales from Africa by Verna Aardema( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 1,508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of twelve folktales from different parts of Africa. A fine collection of African tales, with each story preceded by a map showing its locale and a glossary of unfamiliar words. Annotation. Illustrated in full color. From Angola to Zanzibar, this treasury is as varied and bountiful as Africa itself! Master storyteller Verna Aardema retells 12 tales of justice and revenge, greed and generosity, sly trickery, and off-the-wall silliness with her trademark humor and flair. Nearly 50 illustrations vibrantly reflect the spirit of these read-aloud delights, while a map of Africa, story source information, and a personal note from the author make this a rich volume for folk-tale lovers of all ages. "Read this book once for the stories, twice for the illustrations, and a hundred times just for fun."
There was an old lady who swallowed a trout by Teri Sloat( Book )

Set on the coast of the Pacific Northwest, this variation on the traditional cumulative rhyme describes the silly consequences of an old woman's fishy diet. A bright, energetic retelling of a beloved children's rhyme, with a Pacific Northwest twist. "There was an old lady who swallowed a trout That splished and splashed and thrashed about." Everyone has heard about the old lady who swallowed a fly, but there is something particularly fishy about this old lady ... Beautiful illustrations in this story capture the scenery and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest. The buoyant text jumps along as the old lady swallows a salmon, an otter, a seal, a walrus, and more, until eventually she swallows the entire sea and the trout swims free! With a unique and fascinating setting, this pure flight of fancy gives a fresh look to a familiar poem
