Grandmothers' Stories with Audio CDs
Sparks the Imagination
Grandmothers' Stories, Wise Woman Tales from Many Cultures compiled by Burleigh Muten, illustrated by Sian Bailey

The stories in this anthology illustrate many of the qualities of the wise woman, offering readers of all ages a new perspective on the grandmother character that is usually presented in fairy tales as either menacingly evil or dim-witted and useless. With spirited grandmothers from as far afield as Senegal and Sweden, all of these tales are rich with humor, action and suspense. A fresh and witty retelling is complemented by finely detailed and mesmerizing illustrations.

With 2 audio CDs read by Olympia Dukakis.

  • Old Mother Holle (German)

  • Grandmother's Basket (Russian)
  • The Midwife and the Djinn (Senegalese)
  • The Old Woman Who Was Right (Swedish)
