    I very much appreciate this compelling scholarly review by Hamé Watt of my picture book, The Talking Baobab Tree, inspired by Wolof folklore. As an aside, I’d like to note that Wolof is predominantly an oral language, rarely written, and therefore spellings vary from place to place. The information about lalo, and President Léopold Sédar Senghor’s book, Leuk, the Rabbit, was fascinating. I spent several years in Senegal while Senghor was president and greatly admired his literary erudition as well as the fact that after more than two decades as president of Senegal, he left office on his own volition. Again, many thanks for a wonderfully incisive review.
