There was a story that Mama read to Jiro: Once, in old Japan, a young woodcutter lived alone in a little cottage. One winter day he found a crane struggling in a snare and set it free. When Jiro looks out the window into Mr. Ozu's garden, he sees a crane and remembers that story. Much like the crane, the legend comes to life-and, suddenly, Jiro finds himself in a world woven between dream and reality. Which is which? Allen Say creates a tale about many things at once: the power of story, the allure of the imagined, and the gossamer line between truth and fantasy. For who among us hasn't imagined ourselves in our own favorite fairy tale?

"A stunning combination of fluent prose and exquisitely wrought illustrations" (School Library Journal). "An inventive twist on the classic tale" (Publishers Weekly). This Egyptian spin on the classic Cinderella tale was initially recorded in the first century by a Roman historian and is retold here by folklorist Shirley Climo. Poor Rhodopis! She has nothing—no mother or father, and no friends. She is a slave, from the far-off country of Greece. Only the beautiful rose-red slippers her master gives her can make Rhodopis smile. So when a falcon swoops down and snatches one of the slippers away, Rhodopis is heartbroken. For how is she to know that the slipper will land in the lap of the great Pharaoh himself? And who would ever guess that the Pharaoh has promised to find the slipper’s owner and make her queen of all Egypt? Notable Children’s Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies (NCSS/CBC)

A bold, humorous rendition of "The Three Blind Men and the Elephant" illustrated by an award-winning artist! A mysterious creature has been moved into the merchant's barn-and the villagers are dying of curiosity. What does it look like? What could it be? The impatient villagers can't wait until morning to find out. One by one, each takes turns stealing into the dark barn. And each is only able to feel one small part of the beast. "It's like a hose!" says one. "It's like a fan," says another. "No, it's like a tree trunk!" says a third. It's not until the elephant walks into daylight that the truth is revealed. This well-loved story is based on a poem by the popular 13th century Persian poet, Rumi. The author, Mina Javaherbin, also from Iran, has translated and retold this resonant life-long favorite universal tale for contemporary readers of all ages. Eugene Yelchin, Newbery Honor book author/artist ofBreaking Stalin's Nose, has based his brilliant illustrations on Persian miniatures.

Once upon a time in Turkey there lived a funny, little wise man named Nasrettin Hoca. He wore a huge, white turban and a worn-out coat made of patches upon patches. Riding about on his little gray donkey, he liked to help whomever he could. A friend to all, Nasrettin is a popular figure. But when he is suddenly ignored at a friend's banquet, he realizes it is his patchwork coat that is turning people away from him. He leaves the party and returns later, wearing a brand-new coat. Now Nasrettin is warmly welcomed. But instead of eating the delicious foods placed before him, he feeds them to his coat! How Nasrettin Hoca teaches his friends a lesson about appearances is the heart of this hilarious and clever story. With good humor and luminous illustrations inspired by traditional Turkish paintings, Demi brings to life Turkey's most famous folk hero and imparts a timeless tale with a moral that will resonate with readers everywhere.
