Gloria's Porridge

Gloria's Porridge

Author: Elizabeth Laird Illustrator: Toby Newsome Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/05/2021

Inspired by an Ethiopian folk tale, Gloria's Porridge shows young children how one act can cause a chain reaction and affect other people's lives. When Cat wanted some of Gloria's porridge, he ignored her saying no and ate it all. Gloria then scares Cat who tickles the donkey, who interrupts the bees who then frighten the hen. It is up to the fox then to show the others the importance of not letting this setback slow them down. This re-imagined folk tale tackles difficult ideas like having to take responsibility and overcoming setbacks in a fun and simple manner, ideal for young readers. Toby Newsome's colourful illustrations are inspired by his South African surroundings.

Cinderella of the Nile

Cinderella of the Nile

Author: Beverley Naidoo, Marjan Vafaeian Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/09/2019

Beautifully retold by the award-winning author Beverley Naidoo, this earliest-known version of Cinderella is brought to life for the modern-day reader. Rhodopis is a Greek girl who is sold into slavery by bandits and taken to Egypt. Along the way she becomes friends with the storyteller Aesop and a host of playful animals. Her master gives her a pair of beautiful rose-red slippers, making three other servants jealous. But when Horus, the falcon, sweeps in to steal her slipper, Rhodopis has little idea that this act will lead her to the King of Egypt. The first in our 'One Story, Many Voices' series, this ancient story of Cinderella finds its echo in fairy tales all over the world.
