About this book:

Age: 5 - 7. Available in English: The Name of the Tree is Bojabi.

The animals are so, so hungry. Then they see a beautiful tree, covered in ripe fruit smelling of sweetest mangoes, fat as melons, juicy as pomegranates . . . But wrapped around the tree is the largest python they have ever seen. And Python will only let the animals eat of the fruit if they can tell him the name of the tree. What could it be? Only the King of the Jungle knows, and he is far, far away . . .
It is a story for children (and adults) who enjoy nonsense names and rhymes. The repetitive element reinforces the idea of a story being a journey. When the author tells the story, she plays an African thumb piano (m'bira) and uses percussion to add to the sense of rhythm. The power of the story lies in a little tortoise who offers the other animals hope. There is a great sense of triumph in the end.
