The Grey King


Product Description
Product Details


Gr 1-6-This recording contains five adapted Japanese tales performed by captivating storyteller Elizabeth Falconer. In the various stories, a feared dragon turns out to be lonely but friendly, a sneaky badger gets his comeuppance when a magic fan forces his nose to grow, a rabbit loses his long tail when a crocodile bites it off (explaining why even floppy-eared rabbits have short tails), a poor woodcutter is rewarded with gold from mice with whom he shared rice balls, and a kind brother is rewarded with love while a greedy brother is punished. The tales include Japanese music featuring the 13-stringed koto which is played by the narrator, and sound effects. These tales will add flavor to public and school library folktale collections.-Erin Caskey, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Psychology Today"Susan Cooper is one of the few contemporary writers who has the vivid imagination, the narrativepowers, and the moral vision that permit her to create the kind of sweeping conflict between good andevil that lies at the heart of all great fantasy. Tolkien had it. So did C.S. Lewis. And Cooperwrites in the same tradition."
