Underestimating an old lady is never a good idea as shown in this oral story.

Story

A skinny old lady becomes very fat and outwits a lion, a leopard and a bear.

Why we chose it

Mze Kidogo was one of the stories in The Story Museum’s original audio stories collection. These stories are particularly suitable for learning to retell.

Where it came from

Storyteller Adam Guillain heard the story while living in Tanzania and working on a VSO project with Zanzibari children.
