In Issue 33 of the Baba Indaba Children's Stories, Baba Indaba narrates the old English tale of “A MOUTHFUL OF SILENCE”, a story about old Toonie whose greatest wish before he died was to see a fairy. It was well known that in order to see a fairy three things are needed—a handful of courage, a mouthful of silence, and a capful of moonshine. Even though the fairies are wonderful and magical creatures, they are also very private beings and don’t take kindly to mortals disturbing them. But will old Toonie’s wish ever be granted….? You’re invited to download and read the story to find what happened to Old Toonie.
The FREE ADDITIONAL story is about “HURUING WUTHI AND THE SUN” – a Hopi creation legend. Huruing Wuthi, also known as Old Spider Woman, and the Sun get together to bring form to the planet. Once done they see it is in need of animals and people. This legend tells how they go about doing this.

Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as 'Father of Stories'.
It is believed that folklore and tales are believed to have originated in India and made their way overland along the Silk and Spice routes and through the Middle East and Central Asia before arriving in Europe. Even so, this does not cover all folklore from all four corners of the world. Indeed folklore, legends and myths from Africa, Australia, Polynesia, and some from Asia too, can be altogether quite different and seem to have originated on the whole from separate reservoirs of lore, legend and culture.
