Synopsis

Serpents and Werewolves Tales of Animal Shape-shifters from Around the World by Lari Don

A brilliant collection of folk tales: 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... Stories from the Americas, Asia, Scandinavia and Europe make this a wonderfully inclusive anthology, stunningly illustrated in papercut style.

Reviews

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 * Reading and writing folk tales is a valuable exercise for any young writer and this collection...is a masterclass in the genre...we are simply treated to classic plots economically and tantalisingly told. -- Helen Mulley * Teach Primary *
