In this dramatically illustrated book, master storyteller Jan Andrews takes folk tales from old cultures and retells them in new ways for modern audiences. Transformed tales from the motherland include: "Pinkoya's Child," from Chile, now set on the coast of North America; "Little Daughter of the Snow," from Russia, now set on the prairie; and "Pradeep and the Princess Labam," from India, now set in a New World forest. "Ng's cool, brooding full-page paintings have an intense presence that enhances the stories' exotic flavor, and the overall design is elegant. A book not to miss." -- Booklist
