Each story in this collection begins with an undesirable or out-of-balance situation and, through the use of metaphor and an imaginative story journey, leads to a more desirable resolution. In this way, the stories also have the potential for nurturing positive values.

The stories cover many kinds of universal behaviour. Following the alphabet from A to Z, the behaviour is identified in the story title e.g. anxious, bossy, cranky ... greedy ... jealous ... lazy ... swearing ... uncooperative ... and more. The stories can be told directly, or adapted. They can be turned into home-made picture books and puppet shows, or used as springboards for the creation of new tales for particular behaviour challenges and situations.

Review quote

"Susan is a trailblazer for the movement for healing stories.... The playfulness of this book makes it clear to you, the reader, that you can adapt Susan's tales for your own situation or even create your own. I hope you enjoy this delicious story medicine!"

About Susan Perrow

Susan Perrow, M.Ed.Hons is an Australian author who works with 'story medicine'. She passionately believes that 'stories know the way'. She writes, collects and documents stories that offer a therapeutic journey for the reader - a positive, imaginative way of addressing challenging behaviours and traumatic situations, including environmental grief and loss.

Susan has an extensive background in teaching, writing and therapeutic storytelling. She travels nationally and internationally giving keynotes and running seminars for teachers, parents and therapists. Her therapeutic story work has led to the publication of three resource books - 'Healing Stories for Challenging Behaviour', 'Therapeutic Storytelling: 101 Healing Stories for Children' and 'An A-Z Collection of Behaviour Tales'. They have all been published by Hawthorn Press (U.K.), and the first two have now been translated into many languages, including Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, Slovenian, Serbian and Croatian.

A mother of three sons, and a grandmother of nine children, Susan's home is in Lennox Head on the East Coast of Australia.
