Baker & Taylor Filled with spectacular illustrations, a modern retelling of classic folktales includes Pinkoya's Child, which was originally from Chile, now set on the coast of North America, and the Russian tale entitled Little Daughter of the Snow, now set on the prairie.
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
