About this product
- DescriptionThis collection of west-coast fables combines the approach of Aesop with the oral tradition of First Nations storytellers. Woodpecker shows how to be a true friend. Beaver demonstrates how to achieve dreams through hard work. Rainbow Trout finds that all things in nature have a purpose. Parents, grandparents and teachers will embrace Robert James Challenger's stories, which, like all fables, promote cultural values and respect among generations.
- Author BiographyBorn in Vancouver, British Columbia, Robert James (Jim) Challenger has spent his life absorbing the stories and imagery of the Pacific Northwest coast. Jim is an accomplished artist known for his original style that captures the shape and movement of wild creatures in their natural settings. His unique illustrations and beach-stone-and-glass carvings are prized by collectors around the world. In addition to being an artist, Jim is the author of six books for children inspired by oral storytelling traditions and local legends of the Pacific Northwest. Through his stories and designs, Jim reveals a magical world of birds, fish, and mammals who share lessons from nature about the art of living well. He lives in Victoria, British Columbia.
