In this 345th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Fairy Tale "TIM TIM TAMYTAM”.
This story happened in a great forest far, far away and a long time ago. Mr Tamytam, Tim Tim to his friends and Mrs Tamytam, Tum Tum to her friends, were on there way back from visiting friends when they came across a felled tree.
Tim Tim ran home to fetch a candle only to find his house was a total mess. He then remembered that Mrs Fuzzytail, who lived at the top of the tree with her brood of children, had invited the carpenter ants in to make another room. It looked like the carpenter ants had got a bit carried away and undermined the strength of the tree causing it to fall down when the next storm blew through.
So, what did Tim Tim and Tum Tum do now that they had no home. Do you have any ideas? 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!
