Riassunto: The folktales and parables in this collection were selected with a global perspective by professional storyteller Heather Forest from such diverse traditions as Sufi, Zen, Taoist, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, African, and Native American. Comprised of ancient plots both poignant and comical this anthology contains simple truths, common sense, and the promise that we can benefit from past generations' experience. By metaphorically suggesting constructive strategies for living, these ancient tales resonate with a universal appeal. They can be simply enjoyed for their drama or more deeply considered for their subtleties. "The characters in these stories may gain wisdom by observing a good example or by bumbling through their own folly," Heather Forest observes. "I hope these stories will provide discussion and offer insight into the joys, sorrows, fears and farce of human experience. " A two-time Parent's Choice Gold Award winner, Heather Forest is known nationally for her minstrel-style storytelling. She is a recording artist with two recordings in the August House Audio line, Wonder Tales from Around the World and lf Animals Could Talk, winner of the Parents' Choice Gold Award. Her book, Wonder Tales from Around the World, a companion to this volume, received the Storytelling World Anthology Award for 1996. Ms. Forest lives in Huntington, New York, with her husband and two children.
