How the Whale Became: And Other Stories
This collection of eleven evocative, accessible and funny stories for children of 5 and more tells how a particular animal came to be as it is now. The Whale grew up in God's vegetable patch but was banished to sea when he became too large and crushed all His carrots; the Polar Bear was lured to the North Pole by the other animals who were jealous that she always won the annual beauty contest; the Hare has asked the moon to marry him but can never stretch his ears high enough to hear her reply; and, the Bee must sip honey all day long to sweeten the bitter demon that runs through his veins...each story is a delight for reading alone or aloud.
