Publisher's Summary

How can a blind man see more than his companion, the hunter? And how do fishes find themselves swimming in the grass of a forest? Nothing is quite as it seems in this unusual collection of tales gathered from the far north to the equator, and the transformations that occur provide plenty of food for thought on just how vast and mysterious our world is.

World-class storyteller Hugh Lupton will captivate listeners of all ages with this anthology.

Listen to more children's favorites from Barefoot Books.

Critic Reviews

"Lupton imbues each folktale in this unusual collection with the rhythm and wit of an informal orator, and delivers a nugget of truth at the close....He weaves in riffs tailored for reading aloud and prompting interaction with the listener." (Publishers Weekly)
