Find out how a monkey gets the better of a crocodile; how an unassuming spider helps her community of animals when all the strongest ones fail; and how a greedy pelican gets what he deserves when he tries to take advantage of the fish in his local lake.
All of the tales in this rich and wide-ranging collection are thought-provoking as well as entertaining. Storyteller Naomi Adler has gathered together traditional tales from cultures all over the world, introducing young readers to many traditions with nine fun-filled animal adventures. In each instance, her intimate, witty, and engaging text is beautifully complemented by the playful illustrations of Amanda Hall.
Perfect for reading aloud and a pleasure to read alone, this collection will give years of enjoyment to all the family.
