The Lion Storyteller Book of Animal Tales Synopsis

From ancient times to the present day, people have been telling stories about animals. Bob Hartman is no exception. Over his many years as a professional storyteller, he has told stories about a menagerie of creatures - big and small, tame and scary, real and mythical. The Lion Storyteller Book of Animal Tales features some of his favourites. This collection contains over 35 retellings - well-loved traditional tales, little-known legends, and several original stories. These entertaining tales are drawn from all corners of the globe and feature a wide variety of animal characters. Yet this is more than just a collection of animal stories, for many of these fun-filled retellings will also inspire children to think about right and wrong. Appealing illustrations complement the fun and action of the words, capturing the mood of each story and bringing animals, birds and insects vividly to life.
