From ancient times to the present day, people have been telling stories about animals. Bob Hartman is no exception. Over his many years as a professional storyteller, he has told stories about a menagerie of creatures - big and small, tame and scary, real and mythical. The Lion Storyteller Book of Animal Tales features some of his favourites. This collection contains over 35 retellings - well-loved traditional tales, little-known legends, and several original stories. These entertaining tales are drawn from all corners of the globe and feature a wide variety of animal characters. Yet this is more than just a collection of animal stories, for many of these fun-filled retellings will also inspire children to think about right and wrong. Appealing illustrations complement the fun and action of the words, capturing the mood of each story and bringing animals, birds and insects vividly to life.

Bob Hartman is a performance storyteller par excellence. He has been entertaining audiences on both sides of the Atlantic for over 25 years with his books and performances, which bring together retellings of Bible stories and traditional tales from around the world with his own imaginative stories.

His books are full of humour and insight, whilst his storytelling sessions are exciting, engaging, dynamic – and above all, interactive!

He is well known for his hugely popular The Lion Storyteller books, the Telling the Bible series, and the highly acclaimed picture books: The Wolf Who Cried Boy, Dinner in the Lions' Den and The Three Billy Goats' Stuff.
