Listen to the Storyteller
Illustrator: Balouch, Kristen
Introduction: Marsalis, Wynton
A maiden imprisoned by her cold-hearted brother is rescued by the power of love; a quest for knowledge leads three boys on an unforgettable journey--from which only two will return; a willful boy and a dancing witch go to clamorous lengths to win a magic fiddle. This engaging trio of original stories--inspired by folklore from the Celtic highlands, the North American plains, and the balmy islands of the Caribbean--is just right for reading aloud.
Stunning, collage-like illustrations by Kristen Balouch capture each story's unique flavor and bring this medley to vivid life. In addition, three renowned composers have interpreted the tales for children through richly scored music--AVAILABLE ON COMPANION CD AND CASSETTE FROM SONY CLASSICAL (NOT INCLUDED WITH THIS BOOK).
Whether experienced through words, pictures, music, or all three, Listen To The Storyteller is an exceptional collection of original tales that celebrates the enduring appeal of folklore and the storytellers who tell the tales.
This First Edition copy (full number line) appears unread and both book and dustjacket still look new--in our opinion, gift quality. There are no remainder marks, the dustjacket is not price-clipped and this is not ex-library.
