In this 323th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Norwegian Fairy Tale "THE THREE PRINCESSES IN THE BLUE MOUNTAIN”.

After many years of trying, a king and queen eventually had three daughters. As they grew up they became both fair and beautiful, and all went well with them in every way. Their only sorrow was that they were not allowed to go out and play like other children. For all they begged and prayed their parents, and for all they besought the sentinel, it was of no avail; go out they must not before they were fifteen years old, all of them.

One day, not long before the fifteenth birthday of the youngest Princess, the King and the Queen were out riding, and the three princesses decided to picnic in the forest. No sooner had they arrived at their picnic spot, than a snow storm blew in and whisked the princesses away.

There was great mourning over the whole country, and the King made known from all the churches that anyone who could save the Princesses should have half the kingdom and his golden crown and whichever princess he chose to marry.

There were plenty nobles, captains and other officers who wanted to gain half the kingdom, and a princess into the bargain; so there were people of both high and low degree who set out for all parts of the country. But there was no one who could find the Princesses, or even get any tidings of them.

A lowly foot soldier, who had dreamt of the princesses and their whereabouts requested permission to search for the princesses, and the king and court officials laughed him out the castle. But the next day and the next and the one after that he made representation to the king until he finally was granted permission.

This then is the story of the lowly soldier who set off in search of the princesses and to succeed where all others had failed. Did the soldier really believe he would succeed when far more qualified men had failed? Was his dream a real message or was it a fanciful wish by an uneducated man who was simply dreaming of a better life? Well to find the answers to these questions, and others you may have, you will have to download and read this story to find out!

Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories".

Each issue also has a "WHERE IN THE WORLD - LOOK IT UP" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story. HINT - use Google maps.

An Introduction to Baba Indaba

Baba Indaba, pronounced Baaba Indaaba, lived in Africa a long-long time ago. Indeed, this story was first told by Baba Indaba to the British settlers over 250 years ago in a place on the South East Coast of Africa called Zululand, which is now in a country now called South Africa.

In turn the British settlers wrote these stories down and they were brought back to England on sailing ships. From England they were in turn spread to all corners of the old British Empire, and then to the world.

In olden times the Zulu’s did not have computers, or iPhones, or paper, or even pens and pencils. So, someone was assigned to be the Wenxoxi Indaba (Wensosi Indaaba) – the Storyteller. It was his, or her, job to memorise all the tribe’s history, stories and folklore, which had been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years. So, from the time he was a young boy, Baba Indaba had been apprenticed to the tribe’s Wenxoxi Indaba to learn the stories. Every day the Wenxoxi Indaba would narrate the stories and Baba Indaba would have to recite the story back to the Wenxoxi Indaba, word for word. In this manner he learned the stories
