In issue 126 of the Baba Indaba Children's Stories, Baba Indaba narrates a story about a French gentleman, Alexandre Décamps, who, in 1830, when the shooting season started, kitted himself out to join the shooting parties and bag himself some wild fowl. Despite his expense and effort all Alexandre bagged was – a frog! Having a philosophical nature, Alexandre names the frog Mme. Camargo and takes the frog home with him, where he adds it to his already extensive menagerie. ........... Download and read about how Mme. Camargo helps Alexandre in and around his apartment.


Each issue also has a "WHERE IN THE WORLD - LOOK IT UP" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story, on map. HINT - use Google maps.

Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories".

It is believed that folklore and tales are believed to have originated in India and made their way overland along the Silk and Spice routes and through Central Asia before arriving in Europe. Even so, this does not cover all folklore from all four corners of the world. Indeed folklore, legends and myths from Africa, Australia, Polynesia, and some from Asia too, are altogether quite different and seem to have originated on the whole from separate reservoirs of lore, legend and culture.

About the Author

The Baba Indaba Children's Stories, published by Abela Publishing, often use folklore and fairy tales which have their origins mists of time. Afterall who knows who wrote the story of Cinderella, also known in other cultures as Tattercoats or Conkiajgharuna. So who wrote the original? The answer is simple. No-one knows, or will ever know, so to assume that anyone owns the rights to these stories is nothing but nonsense. As such, we have decided to use the Author name "Anon E. Mouse" which, of course, is a play on the word "Anonymous".
