Beautiful, gripping

Each of the nine storytellers represented here has a very distinctive voice but the one thing they all have in common is that they grip the reader right from the first sentence. And among the stories themselves, there’s something for everyone: magic, retribution, monsters, dragons, giants, deities, misunderstandings, humor, pride… Helping to bring the stories together as a collection are Niruoama Sekhar’s colourful illustrations. Her style shifts to allow each story some individuality but certain motifs are carried through the whole book... All in all, this is an excellent anthology that is likely to become a firm favourite in homes and schools alike. papertigers.org
