Meet a sailor with an ogre wife in a story from China, a young girl who outsmarts giants in a tale from Fiji, a clever rooster seeking its fortune in a tale from Morocco, a music-playing jaguar in a story from Ecuador, and princes turned to statues in a story from Italy.
Donna Jo Napoli's powerful storytelling makes these stories fresh and fun, and Christina Balit's dazzling illustrations make this book a true treasure--a very special gift and a must-have for family bookshelves.
