Bob Hartman is well known as a storyteller who captures children's imagination and keep them spellbound. In this collection he blends familar stories with little-known tales. There are retellings from sources as diverse as La Fontaine, Aesop, Uncle Remus, and folk tales and legends from around the world. Yet this is more than just a collection of animal stories - most of the appealing retellings have been selected because of their implicit moral teaching or positive values. This captivating collection reflects the storyteller's humour and joy of life, both of which are echoed in Susie Poole's bold watercolour illustrations. 'An excellent bedtime reader for the younger child, with a different aspect of human nature examined in each story - plus superb illustrations from Susie Poole.' - Christian Marketplaceshow more

Review quote

"For several years now, both teachers and parents have been asking me to write a collection of animal stories. But until I started reading traditional tales and choosing the ones I wanted to retell, I never realized why animal stories are so popular. And it's simple. Animal stories are really just stories about us! Aesop knew that, thousands of years ago. His busy ants, lazy grasshoppers, and conceited crows were just a way of exploring some very basic human laws and virtues." --Bob Hartmanshow more
