KIRKUS REVIEW

Sixteen stories from New Guinea comprise a refreshing reflection of a people well endowed with humor, imagination, and common sense. Stories of how indigenous animals attained their attributes, tales of spirits, and great feats are recounted in simple but lively language. Illustrated by Michael Brett, this collection from New Guinea is an admirable addition to the library of legend and fairy tale.
