Review by rata
Folk tales from around the world giving an insight into good versus evil, creation stories and moral messages. Very short and because of this they tend to leave you thinking 'is that it?' or what was the tale? Good for younger readers, 9 -10 or for creating discussion to gather listener's ideas to further develop storylines
