     STORIES TO HEAR           a storyteller’s life

 
 


Inspired by the success of my previous book, Stories at the Door,  I’ve turned to even more rambunctious tales.  As before, I’m using the traditional folktales as my source and inspiration so these stories have stood the test of time.


Meet Mr. Mosquito, who gets himself changed into a chicken;

meet an old woman so rude she won’t even consent to die.

Find out why dogs have such a very particular way of greeting one another.

Revel in the belching contest that moved a house. 


  Illustrations by Francis Blake are as much fun as ever.  There are rhymes to delight in as well.


Reviewers are loving this one.  In a Quill and Quire starred review, Emily Donaldson wrote, “Parents and teachers bracing themselves for an onslaught of potty humour can breathe easy.  These are indeed rude stories, but they are rude stories of the highest order: wonderfully inventive, delightfully told.”   When I gave the first reading, there were people in the audience laughing so hard I thought they were going to fall out of their seats.
