    When Paul White was a missionary doctor in Africa, he used animal stories to convey gospel messages to the people. Here are some of those delightful animal fables.

    Titles include:


    Jungle Doctor's Fables

    There was once a monkey who didn't believe in crocodiles—but that didn't make any difference when he met one in the middle of the night on the banks of the Great River. There was another monkey who tried to pull himself out of a bog by his whiskers; all that was left of him was two small bubbles on top of the mud. And as for the snake who thought he could steal the egg of Kuku the hen without being found out—well, he couldn't say that his wife hadn't warned him in plenty of time!


    Jungle Doctor's Monkey Tales

    The wisdom of monkeys is proverbially small. They never could remember not to get too near to the hind feet of zebra, nor to throw coconuts at Chewi the leopard, nor to look into the eyes of snakes. Luckily for his little nephews, Uncle Nyani, the only survivor of a family of seven, is always near at hand to tell them how they can live to be as old as he is!


    Jungle Doctor's Tug-of-War

    Even by monkey standards, young Toto is pretty dim! Those baddies of the jungle, Crunch the Crocodile, Mbisi the Hyena, Slinki the Jackal, Vibi the Vulture and Gnark the crow look as though they are going to have an easy time finishing him off. However, Toto soon finds himself in the middle of a tug-of-war, for his real friends, Elephant, Giraffe, Parrot and Hornbill are determined to rescue him from the clutches of the jungle underworld.


    Jungle Doctor's Hippo Happenings

    Boohoo the unhappy hippo was always in trouble. He had the kind of face which frightened even him when he saw it in a mirror, while the rest of him wasn't very much more beautiful! On top of all this, he suffered from hay-fever, and an awful desire to do good!


    Jungle Doctor's Rhino Rumblings

    Rhino bored holes in the clear morning air with his large spiky horn, and a deep rumble came from inside him, "I am big, I am strong, I am important. I AM RHINO!" And so Jungle Doctor's latest all-too-human animal creation makes his entrance! He begins by carving his own private motorway through the jungle—until, that is, the-elephant-that-isn't gets in the way! Poor Rhino! He seems to be blessed with the gift of not only making trouble for himself and everybody else, but getting into it as well!


    Jungle Doctor Meets Mongoose

    "He has an animal under his shirt and he says he won't stay in hospital unless that animal stays too" —thus we meet Hwikwi the mongoose for the first time! Mind you, it's almost the last,—the story of mongoose nearly finishes before it gets properly started! If it weren't for Elephant's powerful medicine—but if you want to find out why Elephant was burying the pink stuff from the Masumu tree, or for that matter, how Python got his bulge or Goon the baboon got the bump on his head, not to mention how Rhino's ill-tempered relative got a very sore nose indeed, then you're going to have to read this new collection of Jungle Doctor's larger-than-life animal fables!
