In this humorous African folktale, narrated by Whoopi Goldberg, Koi wants the villagers to honor him as befits the son of a chief. But unless he can accomplish three impossible tasks, he will end up in the cooking pot instead. His problems begin with a scrawny kola tree, and they end when three unlikely new friends – a snake, an ant and an alligator – save his life and help him find his rightful place in the world. This powerful adaptation captures the rich textures and folk imagery of African culture. Musical accompaniment by Herbie Hancock. Ages five and up. Part of the award-winning Rabbit Ears series, We All Have Tales.
