Caribbean Folk Tales

This product is not available in the selected currency.


Caribbean islands are rich in oral stories. Steeped in history where ancestors arrived as slaves, many stories are of West African origin. Carried to the islands with rhythm and song, stories were blended with European and East Indian folklore. Professional Storyteller Wendy Shearer has gathered together stories from many islands, with themes of magic and mystery, love and loss, tricksters and fools. Alongside the stories are reminiscences of migration from the Windrush generation - people who came from the Caribbean to Britain, shaping new stories to influence the old.

Cric! Crac! Be enchanted by La Diablesse from Trinidad, outsmarted by the trickster Anansi, terrified by the shape-shifting Baccoo in Guyana and hunted by the Soucouyant from Dominica. Be inspired by the Jamaican story 'Jon Do-Good', which tells of the movement of people from Africa to the Caribbean; 'do good, do good, whatever you do, do good'.
