The Magic Fish

The Magic Fish

In an African setting, this is the tale of the fisherman who catches a fish that talks and, out of kindness, sets it free. But his greedy brother reckons this magic fish – which is not unlike a coelacanth – is worth a few wishes. So their grass hut becomes a brick house, and the brother becomes first the chief, then the president. But his greed is finally punished.
