In this 344th issue of the Baba Indaba's Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Fairy Tale "THE WISHBONE".
ONCE upon a time, long, long ago and far, far away, in a kitchen, the utensils were waking up....
The stove lifter lay upon his iron side and looked across the top of the shelf which stood above the stove. "Who is he?" he asked of the box of matches lying near him. The box of matches looked at the strange new object standing upon two thin white legs and leaning against the wall near the coffee pot.
"I do not know!" the match box answered.
Then they asked a number of other objects lying about if they knew who the newcomer was, but none of them had ever seen anything like him before.

So just who was the stranger in the kitchen and what was he doing there? The instruments grew restless with anxiety. How long will they be made to wait to find out? One wondered would they ever find out who the spindly legged stranger was?
Did they ever find out you ask...? Well, to find the answers to these questions, and others you may have, you will have to download and read this story to find out!

Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories".

Each issue also has a "WHERE IN THE WORLD - LOOK IT UP" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story. HINT - use Google maps.
