about

This inspiring resource contains 50 of the worlds greatest stories dramatically retold for telling aloud, with children aged 5–11. They vary in length and topic, but all contain important truths. Most are taken from classic literature or from folk tales, a few are new stories dug out of the authors imagination. There are other more traditional stories from around the world, such as the legend of Antonio the juggler from Italy, and the tragic tale of Gelert from Wales. Some are historical – the story of Gladys Aylward who rescued children in China, or the delightful tale of how Amy Carmichael prayed for blue eyes – while others tell of wondrous adventure such as the delightful "Hugs and Kisses" contest. This charming book will be enjoyed time and again. It will hold the attention of both children and adults and will lead to fruitful discussions of bigger themes such as truth, courage and identity.Drawing on the rich imaginations of master storytellers throughout the ages author Mark Griffiths brings their creations vividly to life. He includes three delightful tales from Oscar Wilde. His retelling of “The Russian Shoemaker” by Leo Tolstoy is enchanting and a must for Christmas.
