Tales of Wisdom and Wonder


View All Available Formats & Editions


How can a blind man see more than his companion, the hunter? What will become of the peddler who decides to follow his dream? And how do fish find themselves swimming in the grass of a forest? Nothing is quite as it seems in this book; so young readers should prepare themselves to be astonished, intrigued and enchanted as they follow the magical transformations that occur.

Beautifully captured by Niamh Sharkey's quirky and perceptive illustrations, these tales have all the color and vigor of the countries and cultures they represent. At the same time, they each remind readers how vast and mysterious the world is, and how lives can be transformed by the most unexpected circumstances. Full-color illustrations.
