From the oldest "Cinderella" story in the world to a tale of a boy who lived among seals, storyteller Rafe Martin delivers imaginative and impressive tales that will delight the whole family. He presents his award-winning children's picture books, which originally developed from his performances. "The Rough-Face Girl," an ancient Algonquin Indian tale, may have been brought back to France by fur traders, where it became "Cinderella." "Foolish Rabbit," Martin's first children's book, is based on a 3,000-year-old story from India about facing fear, while "The Boy Who Lived with the Seals" is a longer version of a Native American tale about following our own visions. Finally, the evocative "The Boy Who Loved Mammoths" grew out of Martin's childhood wishes, dreams, and memories.
