About the Book
There is no greater story teller than a grandmother. Her stories are full of life and wisdom, and her tales teach kids about proud kinds, mischievous monkeys, cheating thieves, bears and gods. In stories such as that of a bear who partook of some really bad dessert, a lazy man who would not put out a fire until it scorched his beard and a queen who discovered silk. Hilarious, wise and instructive, these stories teach kids about the value of elders and the wisdom that the older generation can pass down.
