The stories in this anthology illustrate many of the qualities of the wise woman, offering listeners of all ages a new perspective on the grandmother character that is usually presented in fairy tales as either menacingly evil or dim-witted and useless. With spirited grandmothers from as far afield as Senegal and Sweden, all of these tales are rich with humor, action, and suspense.
Academy Award-winning actress Olympia Dukakis enhances the emotion and depth of these diverse stories celebrating the wisdom of our elders with her heartfelt narration. Parents will enjoy listening to this unique collection as much as their children.
