Having been born in Africa during an era when owning a picture book, let alone affording TV was a luxury, ‘Tug Of War’ was inspired by many of the African folk stories that were told to us by my grandmother. These stories were occasionally told during evenings, after meals and were extremely entertaining as well as educational in a way that made me visualize them. As a result, I have been motivated to share this experience pictorially in this book. It tells of three characters, Elephant, Hippopotamus and Rabbit. The story begins deep in the African jungle where the agile and witty Rabbit entertains himself by challenging Elephant and Hippopotamus to a game of tug of war. The little animal selects the competitors on two distinct characteristics. They live in completely different environments and possess similar strengths. Elephant naturally prefers the inner jungle and Hippopotamus spends most of his time in the water. This presents a perfect opportunity for a perfect match with Rabbit handing each end of the rope to each large animal at different times declaring that he can defeat either Elephant or Hippopotamus to this pull game. It actually ends with both huge animals fiercely competing against one another yet ignorantly believing that Rabbit is on the other end. This teaches us to acknowledge and respect each other and not to judge each other in terms of natural built or stature.

Animal Tales From The Caribbean

These twenty-one animal tales from the Colombian Caribbean coast represent a sampling of the traditional stories that are told during all-night funerary wakes. The tales are told in the semi-sacred space of the patio (backyard) of homes as part of the funerary ritual that includes other aesthetic and expressive practices such as jokes, song games, board games, and prayer. In this volume these stories are situated within their performance contexts and represent a highly ritualized corpus of oral knowledge that for centuries has been preserved and cultivated by African-descendant populations in the Americas. Ethnomusicologist George List collected these tales throughout his decades-long fieldwork amongst the rural costeños, a chiefly African-descendent population, in the mid-20th century and, with the help of a research team, transcribed and translated them into English before his death in 2008. In this volume, John Holmes McDowell and Juan Sebastián Rojas E. have worked to bring this previously unpublished manuscript to light, providing commentary on the transcriptions and translations, additional cultural context through a new introduction, and further typological and cultural analysis by Hasan M. El-Shamy. Supplementing the transcribed and translated texts are links to the original Spanish recordings of the stories, allowing readers to follow along and experience the traditional telling of the tales for themselves.
