Description: These folk stories teach the deep-hearted wisdom of the Cuban people.

Like a warm sea breeze, these tales will sweep your imagination away to the tropical island of Cuba. There youíll meet a stingy old lady who owns the only fire in the world. Sheís just skin and bones, but she can dance for three days and nights without stopping. Sheíll give you a bit of her fire if your music is good enough to keep her high-stepping that long.

Andóas if one wild dance werenít enoughóat another fiesta youíll hear the animals playing such good tunes that youíll be dying to get inóbecause you canít enter if you headís still attached to your shoulders!

Youíll also find yams that talk and a rose bush that sings a beautiful songóand an old devil man who leaves hairy footprints wherever he goes.

Like the green island of Cuba, these thirteen tales are full of warmth, laughter, magic and wisdom. Have fun reading and re-telling them yourself. Then youíll be participating in the wonderful spirit of Cuban storytelling.
