If you are an Alexander McCall Smith fan don't expect THE GIRL WHO MARRIED A LION... to be written in the same vein. This is a collection of stories told TO Mr. Smith by African natives. These simplistic stories illustrate basic values. The characters are sometimes animals with human traits or people with animal instincts. Given this, the work is an interesting collection of stories that give insight into both the African storytelling tradition and the origins of Mr. Smith's writing style. The tales are strong on morals and character and weak on plot line and scene development.

Listening to this at night reminds me of bedtime stories when I was a child. These tales are short and lovely -- and each has a moral. Listening before I go to bed each night puts a smile on my face as I drift off.
