Synopsis

Not So Fast Songololo
The Village of Round and Square Houses
A young West African girl explains why the men in the village of Tos live in square houses, and the women live in round ones. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Who's in Rabbit's House?
Masai actors in animal masks perform this traditional African folk tale about a rabbit that can't get into her house because of a creature known as the Long One rumored to eat trees and trample on elephants. Perhaps with a little assistance from the leopard, the rhino, and the elephant the desperate rabbit can be back in her home by sundown. James Earl Jones narrates. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Hot Hippo
Adapted from the popular children's book by Mwenye Hadithi and Adrienne Kennaway, this story tells how a friendly hippo promises not to eat the delicious fish that swim in his pond in exchange for being allowed to live in the water rather than on dry land. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears
Acclaimed actor James Earl Jones narrates this traditional African tale detailing a curious mishap on the jungle grapevine. When a tall tale sparks a chain reaction that leads from the common mosquito to the majestic owl, things will never be quite the same under the thick green foliage. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
