The Jungle Storytelling Festival
In a jungle far far away, the animals are getting ready for the storytelling festival. Lion, Monkey, and Tortoise delight the audience with well-known stories from their family lore. ‘C-c-can I tell a story too?’ asks Ostroo the ostrich. Others make fun of him because he stammers—but where there is a story, there’s always a way!
From a seasoned storyteller comes this sensitive story with many stories within it, which inspires us to overcome our fears. Soft pastels and colour pencils create warm pictures of a world in which encouragement comes unexpectedly from friends.
