Tales of Wisdom & Wonder (Book & CD)

Author(s): Hugh Lupton


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 from around the world. Beautifully captured by Niamh Sharkey's quirky and perceptive illustrations, these tales remind us of how vast and mysterious our world is, and how our lives can be transformed in the most unexpected circumstances.
