Titin and the Forest Beast is a fictitious story set in a rural community in Teso, Uganda. It is based on a fable told by adults to children in this particular area of the country to deter them from wondering away from home and to make them obey adults and do their chores. The story n... arrates the adventures of Titin a 9 year old girl - the main character in the story - who wakes up late one morning to find that the kids she normally walks to school with have all gone and she had to walk to school alone through the forest where the fabled beast is supposed to live. The story enables readers to see the impact of such fables on children through the eyes and mind of a child. The book is intended for young readers between the ages of 5-10 years but I hope that readers of all ages will find it interesting. I believe it would be a wonderful addition to the collection of any primary school library as well as public and home libraries. I hope that young readers and adults alike will welcome the opportunity to experience a tiny bit of Titin's world for a brief moment as they read the book and view its vivid illustrations.
