Why do skunks have an awful smell? What would the sky taste like? Was the snow always white?

Stories can answer lots of questions. All around the world people have great tales to tell. Meet the clever rabbit who faces up to a big bully; the mother owl who protects her babies; the dog whose nose is very useful; meet lions, monkeys, elephants, mermaids and fairies.

LIZ WEIR is a professional storyteller who works with all age groups promoting the traditional art for which Ireland is world famous. A children’s librarian by training, she now travels the world telling stories to adults and children, organising workshops on storytelling, and speaking at courses for parents, teachers and librarians. Her wealth of stories is drawn from both the oral and written traditions. She was the first winner of the International Story Bridge Award from the National Storytelling Network, USA, which cited her “exemplary work promoting the art of storytelling. She was awarded an MBE for her services to the Arts and Education in January 2019.

'an absolute delight to parents and children alike whether, as intended, they are read aloud or listened to on the accompanying CD. . . the large print format is another bonus.'
