The Lovereading4Kids comment
Who hasn’t wondered what it would be like to be an animal? No wonder that shape-shifter stories are so fascinating to us, or that they feature in so many different cultures. Storyteller Lari Don has gathered together a spellbinding collection of shape-shifter tales from across the globe, and retold them with wonderful brevity and zest, making this perfect both for dipping into, and a collection that readers will want to return to again and again. In the same voice she’s included notes on the different stories, and why in particular they caught her imagination, and these add to the appeal. A collection as good and well-told as this will bring out the storyteller in everyone! ~ Andrea Reece
Serpents and Werewolves Tales of Animal Shapeshifters from Around the World by Lari Don
This is a wonderful anthology, stunningly illustrated in papercut style, of animal shape-shifter stories from around the world. With Greek and Egyptian myths, Welsh and Northumbrian legends to Scottish and Japanese folktales each story is just a few pages and perfect for parent and child to share at bedtime, from the girl whose stepmother turned her into a dragon, to the werewolf's bride, and the god who became a fish but was caught in his own net...
'This is a book that will entertain even the most reluctant reader.' Irish Examiner
'This extraordinary and magical collection of little-known folk tales is beautifully illustrated in paper-cut style and perfect for dipping into on autumnal evenings and winter's nights.' Springboard Stories
