Find out how a monkey gets the better of a crocodile, how an unassuming spider helps her community when all of the stronger animals fail, and how a rabbit is rewarded for making a special sacrifice. Each of the stories in this collection features different animals and each comes from a different culture.
Funny, exciting and thought-provoking, Naomi Adler s retellings reflect her mastery of storytelling. Amanda Hall's beautiful and playful illustrations and borders capture the traditional motifs of each culture. The anthology combined with our new Animal Tales Audio Book CD makes a distinctive gift for animal lovers of any age.

"A celebration of animals is offered to us on this fine book of nine stories from countries including India, Brazil, Australia, Canada and Germany." --School Librarian
"[W]ritten in a lively, fun-to-read style and would make a good addition to a storytelling session, country or culture project, or a unit on legends and folktales. The full color illustrations are well done and nicely picture the story. The borders on each page are done in styles to fit the culture from which the story comes and add to the appeal of the book. This volume will enhance any collection." --Library Media Connection
"A valuable resource for any teacher or students, this is also a handsome gift book in the clean, uncluttered style which has become the hallmark of Barefoot Book collections for eight to twelve year-olds." --Bookseller
