Hugh Lupton's prestigious career as a professional storyteller spans almost twenty tears. In 1985 he co-founded the acclaimed 'Company of Storytellers' and has since performed throughout the world. His previous work with Barefoot Books includes the award winning Tales of Wisdom and Wonder (1998), Freaky Tales From Far and Wide (1999) and more recently The Songs of Birds (2000). Hugh lives in East Anglia. Sophie Fatus graduated from the Academy of Fine Art in Paris in 1980 and has since become a full-time illustrator and sculptress. Her brightly colored, quirky illustrations have been exhibited in many European Countries, and her three dimensional works can be seen in the Musee du Cirque in Paris. Sophie now lives in Florence with her husband and cat.From AudioFile:
This outstanding collection of stories from around the world includes favorites you're sure to know ("The Little Red Hen," "The Three Billy Goats Gruff") and others ("The Magic Porridge Pot," "The Blue Coat") you'll be glad you didn't miss. Hugh Lupton tells listeners that these are tales "to be read aloud," and the collection reveals his skills as a storyteller who understands the power of rhythm and repetition. His perfectly paced narration allows children to follow along and join in with well-loved phrases, and a jaunty tune dividing the tales invites listeners to dance and snap their fingers, underscoring the music of the stories themselves. These tales are classics and will appeal to a wide range of ages. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
