'We hope this audiobook will be enjoyed by people of all ages across the globe, increasing awareness of Africa's rich cultures while creating a better future for South Africa's most vulnerable children,' said ANSA Executive Director Sharon Gelman.

In his original foreword for the folktales, Nelson Mandela wrote, 'It is my wish that the voice of the storyteller may never die in Africa, that all the children of the world may experience the wonder of books.' The audiobook brings his vision full circle, as these timeless tales return to the oral tradition to be heard around the world.
