by Hartman, Bob
Bob Hartman has a growing reputation as a storyteller who can capture children's imagination and keep them spellbound. In this collection of stories based on traditional folk tales from around the world, he blends familiar stories with little-known tales. Each has been chosen for its integrity or ability to say something positive to children who are learning to understand the world around them. The result is a captivating anthology reflecting the storyteller's humour and joy of life, both of which are echoed in Susie Poole's bold water-colour illustrations.
