Description

This beautifully illustrated collection of stories from one of the world's richest story-telling traditions are ideal for young readers and for reading aloud to 7-11 year-olds. Each story is introduced with information about its origins and the people who first started telling it, and maps locate the places associated with it. The book includes a glossary and sources of further information as well as ideas for activities that children can do to explore the stories and their culture further. Retold by an experienced Caribbean writer and storyteller, this is a book to inform and entertain in equal measure. This is a re-issue of STORIES FROM THE CARIBBEAN in the MULTICULTURAL STORIES series.
