Compere Lapin Tales is a compilation of Saint Lucian Folk Stories, all authentic in nature and perhaps one of the few, documented and published account of these folk tales. Most of the stories relate to animals like Lapin (Rabbit), Tigre (Tiger), Chat (Cat), Cabuite (Goat), Macack (Monkey) and many others in the animal kingdom. There are also those about kings, queens and ordinary men, women and children. The tradition of storytelling has become extinct in Saint Lucia. Prior to the advent of television, storytelling was one of the main sources of entertainment on the island. People would gather around the conteur to listen to the many adventures of creatures from the animal kingdom, particularly the Rabbit known as Compere Lapin. The telling of folk stories at one time formed an integral part of ‘wakes’, a tradition where family and friends gathered to remember their deceased loved ones. It is hoped that this collection will encourage Saint Lucians to once again ‘teway leestwaar’ (relate stories) as a form of entertainment. Although designed for young students, this collection will appeal to adults and anyone interested in the culture of Saint Lucia. Some of the original folktales were considered too crude and were modified out of consideration for young readers.
