Summary

22 traditional stories from the Caribbean

A collection of favourite tales gathered from the many different islands of the Caribbean, one of the world's richest sources of traditional storytelling.

From the very first Kingfisher to Anansi the Spider Man, these lively retellings full of humour and pathos, are beautifully retold by Trish Cooke.

The book includes endnotes with a glossary, additional information as well as ideas for activities that children can do to explore the stories further.
