In this 233rd issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the story of Tiger Tom, about a sailing ship becalmed in the Doldrums. Whats that I hear? You can’t find the Doldrums on a map, and they don’t exist in any country! Where are they you ask? Well they won’t be on any map, neither am I going to tell you where they are. You’re going to have to Google the word “Doldrums” and see what part of the world it says they are in….
Now back to our story - our gallant sailing ship is becalmed in the Atlantic Ocean. Suddenly the lookout shouts to the captain, “Pirates Ahoy!” The captain rushes over to the lookout and follows the line of sight to where he is pointing. There in the gloom of the oncoming night he sees four pirate dugouts approaching from astern. Through his telescope he can just about see the paddlers and men laying flat in the bilges and he realises mischief is afoot. The captain calls his sailors to arms and tells them to prepare to repel the would-be boarders.
But there is one cargo the ship is carrying that will swing the day against the pirates. What could that be? Well you’ll just have to download and read the story to find out exactly what it is.
