Gizo-Gizo!: A Tale from the Zongo Lagoon
by Emily Williamson with students of the Hassaniyya Quranic School in Cape Coast, Ghana
Gizo-Gizo the lazy and selfish spider starts a gold mine that pollutes the Zongo Lagoon and makes other animals sick. When the fish groan with upset stomachs and the frogs wince from sore throats caused by the filthy water, Tortoise and Crab decide that things have gone too far. They come up with a clever plan to teach their friend Spider a lesson and make him clean up his mess.
