The Whistling Monster: Stories from Around the World

By Jamila Gavin
Illustrated by Suzanne Barrett

All children love stories. Here, master storyteller Jamila Gavin draws them from the four corners of the globe: “The Whistling Monster”, a cautionary tale from Brazil; “The Coming of Raven”, a creation myth from Canada; “The Birth of Krishna”, an ancient legend from India… Full of mystery, wit and wisdom, with enduring themes of good versus evil, these ten tales have survived hundreds of years of retelling to become favourites among children all around the world.
