The Snake's Tale

A Picture Book by

A highly-acclaimed author and illustrator join forces to bring readers this original folktale, which explains how stories began to be told.

In this folktale, Beno and his sister Allita live in a time before there were stories. One day, they meet a snake who promises to tell them stories in exchange for the berries they've picked. He tells them how the stars once were bees, and what makes a rose smell sweet; he tells stories about what makes the sky blue, and why frogs croak.
The children tell their parents about stories, and about the snake's tales. Like a snake that sheds its skin, this family's life comes alive with color as they learn the value of storytelling.
