In this 430th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Japanese Legend, "ALENOUSHKA AND HER BROTHER”.
A long, long time ago in Russia, Vanoushka, and his sister Alenoushka, were orphans. Begging scraps and stealing food to eat they were cast out of villages and towns.
One day when crossing open countryside after being cast out of yet another town, Vanoushka is very thirsty. He sees the impression of a horse’s hoof in the soft ground and stoops to drink from it. Alenoushka warns him not to drink from it, else he will be turned into a beast. Almost dying of thirst Vanoushka kneels and tapes a sip and…….POOF!
What happened next you ask…? Well, as you would expect in these circumstances, many things happened. But what was Vanoushka turned in to and will he ever regain his form? What then of Alenoushka, now all alone in the world? To find the answers to this question, and any others you may have, you will have to download and read this story to find out!
