About A River of Stories: Tales and Poems from Across the Commonwealth


From tiny island to vast territory, each of the member countries of the Commonwealth of Nations has a vibrant heritage of storytelling. With a central theme of water, this glorious collection brings together a tale or poem from each of the fifty-four countries of the Commonwealth. Each entry brings its own particular magic - whether describing the simple pleasures of the sound of the ocean or the sun on your face; recounting the cunning tricks of clever animals; or enchanting the reader with the exploits of Kings and Queens, Gods and Goddesses - together they provide an evocative picture, capturing the sights, sounds and flavours of a global community. Jan Pienkowski's dramatic and beautiful silhouettes unify these diverse tales and poems and complete a celebration of global storytelling that documents the meandering nature of tales that traverse continents.
