This week we return to the majestic continent of Africa, and find a very funny and entertaining little tale! I found this wonderful story in a lovely old book of myths and legends from Africa, but it is mysterious in its original exact origins, and like some of the best stories, it might have traveled around quite a bit! It is common in stories from Africa to include animals with human characteristics, and one of the archetypes here is the trickster. The trickster is an animal who outsmarts those around him to his own advantage, and often wins the day because of these games! In this tale, the frog and lizard are brother princes, vying for the throne! One of them will play a little trick to get that crown-the only question is, which one will it be, lizard or frog?!
Thank you for the beautiful music!
