Author John Jackson travelled extensively in India and Nepal. On his return he wrote this collection of short stories, inspired by the traditional stories he heard village elders tell to the children of their village. A father, grandfather and great-grandfather himself, John Jackson has written an enjoyable and accessible collection of stories that explore themes of love, honour, and community.
The collection is aimed at children aged 7-12 years old. Each one of the thirteen tales will delight readers as they meet magical goats, talking lotus flowers, vengeful neighbours and a sparrow on a mission to find breakfast!
Critically acclaimed artist Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini has created 27 original illustrations for the book, including 13 watercolours.
