Description

The hundred stories on this tape come from all four corners of the world -- from Bolivia, New Zealand, the Middle East, many parts of Africa, Egypt, India, China, Japan, Germany, Finland, Siberia, Greece, Canada, Mexico, France, England and many other countries. They make a wonderful hotchpotch of tales that deal with the creation of the world, with gods and goddesses, animals and mythical beasts, heroes and heroines and ordinary people in extraordinary situations. Some of them are well-known - Robin Hood, The Pied Piper, El Cid, Pygmalion - but far more of them are joyful new discoveries. They are chosen because Geraldine McCaughrean loves them and with her genius for spinning tales has made them into a glorious tape of wonders.show more
