Abu-Katrina the Lazy

Stories of a lazy husband out-witted by a clever wife are always popular in a performance.
Watch a storytelling friend, Yoel Perez, telling the tale.

Yoel is a folklorist who has collected a great range of tales. He is also the chair of the Israel Storytelling Association.

Read the tale on Yoel’s website.

Yoel kindly gave me permission to put the link to the story on his website, where he also details the traditional storyteller he heard it from.
