Crocodile is determined to eat fat and juicy-looking Hen! But when he opens his mouth wide to swallow her, Hen calmly says, "My brother, don't eat me," and Crocodile just can't do it. What does Hen mean? How can Crocodile be her brother? Does Hen know something Crocodile doesn't?

Clever Hen outwits the confused and hungry Crocodile in this comic folktale from the Bakongo people of Africa.
