A classic collection, now in paperback. Over thirty stories, with age indicators for each story. This collection of stories, legends and folk tales reflects the season around Easter and early summer. In this season there are also a number of important religious festivals: Ascension, Whitsun and St John (June 24). Some of these stories, like `St Veronica,' are placed in the context of the great Easter and Whitsun events. Others, like `The Bargeman's Easter,' show the effect of these events on human hearts. For younger children folk tales from around the world illustrate, at a deeper imaginative level, the theme of sacrifice, and the triumph of love and loyalty over adversity. We also find the recurring motif of the resurrection, in which the character throws off an outer skin and emerges in a new, truer and shining guise. The stories are arranged in four parts, following the cycle of the festivals. Included are stories by the Grimm brothers, Tolstoy, Chekhov and Lagerl??f, as well as excerpts from the gospels of Matthew and John. THE AUTHOR: Ineke Verschuren has also compiled the well-known collection, The Christmas Story Book. READERSHIP: Children aged 6-12 years, parents and teachers
