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.

For thirty years Hugh Lupton has been a central figure in the British storytelling revival.
Niamh Sharkey is the illustrator of many award-winning children's books. When looking for inspiration for a new picture book, she turned to her old notebooks and sketches. "I came across a 1994 painting, RAVENOUS MONSTERS, featuring hungry, hungry animals. After much playing around with the idea, THE RAVENOUS BEAST was born." Niamh Sharkey lives in Dublin, Ireland.
Where lies your fortune--at home or in a dream? What does a blind man see? Who best knows the innermost soul and when it will be displayed? In collected stories from Africa, the Americas, and Europe, these questions and more are explored. Hugh Lupton's storytelling shines throughout this recording. He embellishes each story with distinctive voices--the fox who cajoles and encourages the healing process, the monkey who whines his way straight to the top, the disbelieving and scornful brother-in-law. Lupton's storyteller's cadence leaves time for imagination and enjoyment. This is one time when it is important to create the scenes orally as the book's stylized illustrations detract from stories' richness.
