53-African Folklore: Crocodile Tears

The story of a dragon slayer from South Africa has, of course, dragons, but it also has giant towers, underwater villages, and a frog who is just trying to have a nice dinner with his family without all the insults, thank you very much.

The creature this week is the world-famous Leprechaun. You should definitely not let him hold your baby.

    I read about Thakane on Rejected Princesses (there is a fun image to go with the story, you should check it out) and in their version it says the magic pebble was an ironstone. I prefer to think it’s tiger iron, because not only is it beautiful, it is said to bring protection from danger.

      Oh…I like the tiger iron. that would have been a good detail. I used three different versions of the story, one of which was the reference they cited, but I wish I was more specific when it came to the pebble. The main version I was using just said it was an orange pebble, so I went with that.

      I love Rejected Princesses. Here’s the link for anyone curious: http://www.rejectedprincesses.com/princesses/thakane

    Where are the source notes for this? I’m intrigued by the glowing dragons and the woman who slays them.
