Read Review
A bold re-envisioning of The Odyssey, told with simplicity and style — perfect for fans of graphic retellings and mythology enthusiasts alike.

Odysseus faces storm and shipwreck, a terrifying man-eating Cyclops, the alluring but deadly Sirens, and the fury of the sea-god Poseidon as he makes his ten-year journey home from the Trojan War. While Odysseus struggles to make it home, his wife, Penelope, fights a different kind of battle as her palace is invaded by forceful, greedy men who tell her that Odysseus is dead and she must choose a new husband. Will Odysseus reach her in time? Homer’s epic, age-old story is powerfully told by Carnegie Medalist Gillian Cross and stunningly illustrated by rising talent Neil Packer.

2. Skinny Girl Stew

by: Tracy ArnotAnn Thompson
Release date: Mar 01, 2001
Number of Pages: 77
Find in Library
Read Review
A vividly depicted, modern-day fairy tale. The heroine’s escapade is textured with real imaginings and experiences of a true-life skinny girl, bringing to life the quest to save dragonkind from extinction. Woven into the narrative is enriching detail, colorfully embossed upon an already prismatic fable. This plot, detail, and richness of description is written so the reader visualizes an animated movie screen performance, as they are drawn into Skinny Girl’s adventures. Vocabulary is not minced. Children deserve to learn and utilize a valuable lexicon outside the classroom. A great nation was assuredly influenced by the results of quality reading during a time when there was no such thing as video games and television to compete. Skinny Girl Stew provides an opportunity to easily comprehend the concept of larger words, based on well-built sentence context.

In this classic tale from early seventeenth-century Korea, Hong Kil Dong, the son of a powerful minister, is not entitled to a birthright because his mother is a commoner. After studying the martial arts, divination, swordplay, the uses of magic, and the wisdom of the I Ching, the Book of Changes, Hong Kil Dong sets off on a quest for his destiny. He leads a band of men to right the injustices shown to the peasants by some powerful and corrupt merchants, ministers, and monks. Hong Kil Dong can then claim his rightful role and become a wise and just leader. This graphic book captures the drama and pageantry of sixteenth-century Korea during the Chosun dynasty and pays tribute to the adventure story that became the first novel written in the Korean language.

6. Fantastic, Fabulous Creatures & Beasts

Release date: Nov 10, 2010

Read Review
Fantastic, Fabulous Creatures & Beasts came about because of my love of history. As a child I was fascinated with folk tales from other countries and the history of ancient civilizations. I read everything I could get my hands on, including the many encyclopedias my parents kept in the study. There was a certain thrill in discovering mythology from all over the world and seeing how closely related it all was. As an adult, my love for mythology and history never ceased. In fact, it grew stronger. After having my second child, I decided it was time to put my favorite myths into a book that would not only entertain my children, but teach them about the various cultures and their folklore. I have taken the “real” folk tales and written them in a format that will help children remember them. Because I have not embellished the stories or changed them in any way from their original versions, you will find happy creatures and sad creatures, friendly creatures and not-so-friendly creatures. The tales contained within are from China, Russia, India and many other countries. Through this book, it is my hope that children will come to respect and appreciate the multicultural world they live in and, of course, remember that our world is still mystical and magical – as long as our stories remain alive.

For over a century, outlaws, prospectors, Russians, Indians, loners, soldiers, and immigrants have thrown themselves into all of the adventure and intrigue money can buy.

As a lad of only sixteen years, Arthur pulled the sword from the stone and thus became High King of all Britain. But scarcely has he begun to arrange his court when twelve of the country’s lesser kings, jealous of Arthur’s glory, declare war on him.

Culminating in the Battle of Bedegraine, this war is fateful in more ways than one–for not only does it secure Arthur’s place among his people, it also unites his destiny with that of Lady Guinevere.

In this, the second volume of his Tales of King Arthur series, Hudson Talbott masterfully retells the saga of Arthur’s early days as leader of Britain, his building of Camelot, and the dedication of the Round Table–a unique brotherhood of knights devoted to unity and peace.

Hudson Talbott’s thrilling text and dazzling paintings bring this tale of heroism, romance, and pageantry to life. The scenes of daring battle and the splendor of Arthur’s court are re, produced here in glorious full color for readers to turn to again and again.

Read Review

“With a style that captures the rhythmic pulse of the Cuban way of life, the vibrant storytelling in this collection of tales by Joe Hayes will delight Spanish-speaking and English-speaking children alike. The accurate translation builds familiarity in reading and expressing ideas in a second language. The colorful illustrations reflect the warmth of Cuban folk art. We hope that this anthology will inspire young readers to gain great awareness of Cuban cultural sensibilities.”—The American Folklore Society

If you travel to Cuba, the people will greet you with a smile. Right away they’ll want you to come to their home and eat a meal. In the meal, you’ll find a mixture of foods and flavors from Spain and Africa—and from many Caribbean cultures as well. In Cuban folktales, you will taste the same delicious mixture of flavors.”

Folklorist and storyteller Joe Hayes first visited Cuba in 2001. He fell in love with the island and its people and began to look for opportunities to meet and listen to Cuban storytellers and to share the stories he knew from the American Southwest. He has returned every year, establishing a rich cultural exchange between US and Cuban storytellers. Out of that collaboration came this savory collection of Cuban folktales, which Joe frames with an introduction and an all-important Note to Storytellers.

Joe Hayes is one of America’s premier storytellers. His bilingual Spanish-English tellings have earned him a distinctive place among America’s storytellers. Joe has published over twenty books. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and travels extensively throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California.

Mauricio Trenard Sayago was born in Santiago de Cuba in 1963. He was raised in a home that was closely linked with art and was surrounded by the artistic debates sustained by the various artists and art history professors in his family. This environment strongly influenced him. Mauricio came to the United States in 2000, and now lives in Brooklyn.

For Forty-five years master pastry chef, Henry Peppermint Twist worked for one of the world’s largest factories, Brackmeyer Sweets, in Apfeldorf Germany. But things quickly turned sour for Henry and nearly four thousand workers as the aged and frail founder retires, leaving his evil and greedy son, Charles B. Brackmeyer Jr., to become the new president. Brackmeyer, whose goal it is to get rid of the dead weight – by which he means “old” people – and replace them with machines.

Henry loses his job and, with nowhere else to go, finds lodgings in a dilapidated retirement home in the countryside. Feeling miserable, old and useless, and wondering just what he will do, he meets a strange little man dressed in brightly colored clothes. The little man tells Henry of a wonderful place where he will never grow older; a place where he can be young and useful once again. He convinces Henry to follow him to this magical place where time moves differently and everything is edible – the Sweet Lands. As Henry starts a new life there, however, he soon learns that even in the Sweet Lands there may be danger lurking around the corner.

In this novella for middle readers, an elderly pastry chef rediscovers his youth in a land of faerie myth and magic.

Read Review
Every country has its folk hero—real or legendary, and in Turkey he goes by the name of Nasreddin Hoca, pronounced Nahz-red’-din Hoe’-djah. He lived several years ago and he served as a religious teacher, Moslem priest or judge as the occasion demanded. In spite of these exalted duties he was as human as any man. He could be wise and he could be foolish, and he was always able to laugh at himself. Over the years a collection of stories grew up around this man, and today there is scarcely a Turk alive who doesn’t know dozens of them by heart. Barbara Walker has put together only a sampling of the hundreds of Hoca tales that exist. She has captured in English the same directness typical of a Turkish storyteller as he relates one of the well-known, well-loved stories of the wisdom or foolishness of Nasreddin Hoca.

Not so long ago, in the tiny, isolated villages of Finland, where prolonged summer days gave way to endless winter nights, people would pass the time by singing the many adventures of their favorite heroes: the mighty, magical men and women of ancient days. 
 
They sang of old Vainamoinen, greatest of sages and magicians, who helped create the world but never could find a woman to wed him. They sang of his friend and ally Ilmarinen, first among craftsmen, the blacksmith who forged the dome of the heavens. 
 
They sang of Louhi, the ancient lady of Northland, whose crafty wit and magical powers made her a worthy opponent for Vainamoinen himself. And they sang of Aila, Louhi’s lovely daughter, who captured the hopes of the two old friends and drew them as rivals to the shores of Northland. 
 
The songs endure, the heroes live, in this poetic retelling of Finland’s national epic, the Kalevala.

19. The Mythical World of Atlantis, from Plato to Disney: Theories of the Lost Empire

by: Jeff Kurtti
Release date: Jun 02, 2001
Number of Pages: 96

Read Review
What do Plato’s “concentric circles,” Ignatius Donnelly’s “mother culture,” and Edgar Cayce’s “firestones” all have in common? Does the center of gravity really lie at the earth’s core? What connection do the “warriors of the clouds” have to current civilization? These and many other questions are answered in The Mythical World of Atlantis – a comprehensive study of the famed lost empire. Elements of theories about Atlantis put forth by philosophers and historians take their place alongside the “theory” revealed in Disney’s newest animated feature. An extension of the film’s fantasy, the book assumes that the fascinating lost civilization was real and flourished. Though the film’s mythology is wholly fabricated, the details conspire to provide the reader with a feeling of authenticity.

Born and raised in Norway, Lise Lunge-Larsen, known to many as “the Troll Lady,” met her first troll at the age of three, and the experience shaped her understanding of the natural world as a place alive and full of mysterious creatures and stories. She has been a storyteller for more than thirty years, and children still beg for “just one more troll story.”

What are trolls and why do children love them so much? As tall as trees and as ancient and rugged as the Norwegian landscape from which they come, trolls are some of folklore’s most fascinating and varied creatures. In this collection of nine troll tales, Lunge-Larsen brings a combination of childhood memories and careful research to the retelling of each story, while Betsy Bowen’s striking woodcuts are as timeless and rare as the trolls themselves.

For centuries, the Great Stone Face has kept silent watch from Cannon Mountain, high above the Pemigewasset River. But who is the onlooker and for whom does he keep vigil? Though from warring tribes, Mohawk maiden Minerwa enchants Chief Pemigewasset, and with their union comes peace for many years. But when Minerwa leaves to visit her dying father, Pemigewasset must stay behind.

She has illustrated several picture books, including Carrot in My Pocket and Good Morning, Garden. Denise lives in Laconia, NH, with her husband and two sons.

This collection of Korean folk tales is sure to delight the hearts of all children between the ages of eight and eighty.

Written with earthy wit and pathos, these Korea children’s tales unveil the inevitable foibles of people everywhere and expose the human-like qualities of animals and the animal-like qualities of humans. Pulsating with the rhythm of life and the seasons, these stories transport the reader to a wonderland, where a tiny mouse teaches filial piety to a spoiled child, a blind man can “see” evil spirits, and fleas drink rice wine.

It is somehow deeply reassuring to know that even in present-day war-ravaged and politically-divided Korea, these same stories are still being told, just as they have been for generations.
