Description

This beautifully illustrated collection of stories from one of the world's richest story-telling traditions is 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 Amazonian culture further. Retold by an experienced writer of stories for the young, this is a book to inform and entertain in equal measure.
