Publisher's Summary

From the oldest "Cinderella" story in the world to a tale of a boy who lived among seals, storyteller Rafe Martin delivers imaginative and impressive tales that will delight the whole family. He presents his award-winning children's picture books, which originally developed from his performances. "The Rough-Face Girl," an ancient Algonquin Indian tale, may have been brought back to France by fur traders, where it became "Cinderella." "Foolish Rabbit," Martin's first children's book, is based on a 3,000-year-old story from India about facing fear, while "The Boy Who Lived with the Seals" is a longer version of a Native American tale about following our own visions. Finally, the evocative "The Boy Who Loved Mammoths" grew out of Martin's childhood wishes, dreams, and memories.

Martin tells wonderful stories fit for all ages.

Richly and powerfully told. Entertaining in ways that trigger the imagination. I got them for my grandson who is 6. I enjoyed them as well, I am 67.
