Review quote

"There are shades of Kipling and Chaucer in this book as a band of animal travellers take it in turns to tell stories as they travel to hear The Tale of Tales. The tales are perfectly complemented by Peter Bailey's wonderfully varied black and white illustrations" The Bookseller "An outstanding book ... A wonderful collection of the world's stories told in reverse" The School Librarian "A deeply enjoyable and attractive little picture book, excellent for reading aloud, and provides a very promising model for showing children how stories can be recreated" Books for Keeps "Beautifully presented ... This is a lovely book for sharing" Inis "Great fun, great variety and great endorsement of storytelling" Irish Timesshow more
