Ever wonder why Elephant has a trunk, or why Tortoise has a broken shell, or why Flamingo stands on one leg, or why Lion roars? Tinga Tinga Tales will answer all your why's! It's a world of stripes and spots, rainbows and patterns. A world where humans don't exist and animals live by their own rules. A world of myth, legend and friendship. A world where you can fly too close to the sun, jump off clouds, and summon musical storms; where you can sing and dance with the dawn chorus, or fall asleep under the stars. A magical world where animals transform before your very eyes! Our hero Monkey and his friends Elephant, Tortoise, Tickbird, Hippo and Lion will take you on a unique safari of adventure and story-telling.
