OMBELA, the story of the rainfall
In this story, Ondjaki invents a myth that explains the “origin of rainfall”. This is the story of a goddess named Ombela who learned how to make it rain using her tears. How her father taught her how to cry, how her tears would be salty or sweet, creating lakes and seas, feeding the earth with the water needed. At least that’s what the older ones tell us…
The power of the palm
This book tells us a legend from Magreb about overcoming. Ben Sadok, an evil and jealous man, couldn’t stand the beauty of the world. The joy and love of others bothered him deeply. But the beautiful tree was able to work around the barriers imposed by the evil man and grow strong and beautiful. A simple and exciting tale.
Along the river
A lovely metaphor of life. Joys, friendships, loneliness or difficulties. For all that we will pass. The important thing is to go ahead and never stop sailing.
