In issue 2 of the Baba Indaba Children's Stories, Baba Indaba tells the ancient African tale of how the hare came to have a slit nose. The story is alternatively known as How the moon came to receive the scratches on her face.
Long, long ago, when the world was quite young, Lady Moon wanted someone to take a message to Men. First she tried one creature and then another, but alas, no! they were all too busy, they were not able to go. At last she called the Crocodile. He is very slow and not much good, but the Lady Moon thought she would pinch his tail and make him go quickly. So she said to him: Go down to Men at once and give them this message: As I die and, dying, live, so also shall you die, and, dying, live.
So, she pinched Mr. Crocodiles tail and off he went at a pace. Hare was watching and he began to laugh at Mr. Crocodiles progress, for Mr. Crocodiles back is stiff like a plank and he really cant walk very fast. In reality, its more of a waddle than a walk. But then this is when things began to go wrong.
You are invited to download the read the whole story of how the hare came to have a split lip and how Lady Moon came by the scratches on her face.
