In the Caribbean, stories are not just for telling and listening: they are for singing and dancing. So here, courtesy of the Caribbean, are five mischievous stories to get the children up and on their feet. The traditional tales are woven around human characters, talking animals and mythical creatures. Grace Hallworth's energetic retellings are accompanied by one-line music, dance rhythm choreography by a well-known dance teacher and by John Clementson's brilliantly colourful collage, together with a glossary and a note from the author.

Review:

"Five traditional Caribbean tales, featuring turtles and tigers, mermaids and kings, are retold by excellent storyteller Grace Hallworth. John Clementson's collage illustrations are as vibrant and lively as the stories they depict." -- "The Ultimate First Book Guide"
