A West African Folktale. Retold and illustrated. by Baba Wague Diakite. New York: Scholastic Press. Turning to Diakite's first book, ''The Hunterman and the Crocodile,'' we see pictures that are strongly influenced by African folk art. Diakite is from Mali and now lives in Oregon, and his characters' expressions, clothes and personalities feel authentic. The illustrations are painted on ceramic tiles; the main characters are all a deep, rich black with bold white outlines. There is color only in the details: green leaves, blue water and yellow ropes against an orange sky.

In the old days the mouse made stories from all that she saw. Stories were her children. Each story-child had its dress - white, blue, red, green and black. Why does the crocodile do not eat hens? Why does the hawk carry off chickens? Why is the dog a friend of man? Why The Hare Has No Tail? Why The Kite Eats Chickens? Short Stories African Folk Tales to HOME PAGE.

I loved this book! One day an author named Baba Wague Diakite came to our school to talk about his book "The Hunterman and the Crocodile." Each classroom got a copy of the book which I read. Soon I discovered that the story was going to be performed as part of the first school play of the year! Even though my class wasn't in it I got to meet Baba-Wague while working on the set since he lives right down the street from my school! And though I had to see it performed four times( because I was asked to do sound) I never got tired of hearing the same same story. I guess seeing "The Hunterman and the Crocodile" come to life gave the meaning of the story even more meaning. I would reccomend this book to anyone of any age.
