This is my favorite storytelling book! I stumbled across it by accident in Borders and have been raving about it ever since. It is my bible. Each multicultural tale is fully indexed to audience age, type of tale, and country of origen. All tales are donated by world class professional tellers who not only put their stories in the public domain, but also add story background information and tips for telling the tales. Small list of acknowledgments serves as a mini-bibliography. I have turned to it many times when I need a story for a quick tell or a more involved program. While I love them all, "The Barking Mouse" and "Dog Tails" are now part of my permanent repertoire. 02/07 ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0874835836, Paperback)

When David Holt and Bill Mooney collaborated on their original Ready-to-Tell Tales, they knew they had a tiger by the tail a how-to book for all those who have watched a master storyteller and wondered, How do they do that? School Library Journal recognized it as an extraordinary collection...it deserves a place on the shelf beside other storytelling classics. It was highly recommended by Booklist and won a truckload of awards and citations.
