The Rumor: A Jataka Tale from India
Jan ThornhillISBN: 1897066279;
Book DescriptionThis classic folk tale about a worrywart rabbit features exquisite illustrations in a traditional Indian style. Long ago in ancient India, there lived a young hare who worries about everything ? food, rain, and even the color of her eyes. As she tries to settle down for a quiet nap, she hears a very loud explosion. Convinced that "the world is breaking up," she tears out of her grove, alarming an increasing herd of animals ? hares, wild boars, deer, tigers, and rhinos ? whose stampede becomes frenzied. Can it be stopped? Perfect for reading aloud, this beautifully told variation on the Chicken Little story is printed in a handsome, large-format book that has the effect of tapestries. Hidden details entice young readers, andNature Notes at the end explain the story?s history along with the wildlife, flora, and fauna that appear.
