Some folk stories endure generation after generation because, although they are not literal, they resound in truths on a human scale. Folktales remind us of wisdom so elemental it is often lost in the rush of everyday life, so that "sometimes common sense makes no sense at all." The six wonder tales on this audiobook are gems of the genre. They have a "long ago and far away" quality. The listener is invited to suspend the logic of ordinary reality and leap into an imaginative world where impossible events can occur.A two-time Parents' Choice Gold Award winner, Heather Forest is known nationally for her minstrel-style storytelling which interweaves prose, poetry, and original vocal and instrumental music. The stories she performs in this audio collection are selected from her book Wonder Tales from Around the World. For Ages Eight to Adult.
