Editorial Reviews

Review

"This handsomely designed, large-format anthology organizes fifty animal folktales and legends by continent. ...The accessible storytelling maintains a pleasing rhythm and folklore-ish tone that should work well for reading aloud. Recommended"
- School Library Connection

"Most of these stories will be entirely new to younger readers. Aitch’s folk-style illustrations, primarily spot art but occasionally full spreads, add flavor to the brief one-to-three-page tales. A colorful collection that encourages readers to learn more about other cultures"
- Booklist

"Rich with imagery and magical happenings, this treasury offers plenty to captivate readers, and Aitch’s pencil and watercolor art neatly bridges the stories’ varied settings."
- Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Angela McAllister took a degree in Humanities at Middlesex College before becoming a children's book author. To date, she has written more than 80 books for children, including Lincoln Children's best-selling titles A Year Full of Stories and A World Full of Animal Stories.

Nomadic illustrator AITCH originally hails from Romania but prefers not to put down roots in any one place; new scenery inspires and invigorates her tactile, folky illustrations and a constant string of exhibitions in cities across the continent pushes her technique further. Her dreamy characters hide among William Morris-esque gardens and bring to mind a bright and bold reincarnation of Victorian melancholy while still retaining a strong sense of her Romanian heritage.

Angela McAllister is the author of over 80 books for children and teens. Her books have won several awards, including the Red House Book Award for 'Yuck! That's Not a Monster!' and the Stockport and Portsmouth Awards for 'My Mum has X-Ray Vision'. Her picture book, 'Leon and the Place Between' has been adapted for the stage and was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award. She has collaborated with many illustrators, including Grahame Baker-Smith, Alex T. Smith, Margaret Chamberlain, Ross Collins and Peter Bailey. She has worked on many titles for Frances Lincoln including bestselling titles A Year Full of Stories and A World Full of Animal Stories.
