Tales of Wisdom and Wonder Reviews

"Lupton imbues each folktale in this unusual collection with the rhythm and wit of an informal orator, and delivers a nugget of truth at the close. Reflecting an impressive amount of research, he culls legends from Ireland, Russia, France, Africa and the Caribbean islands and embellishes them as a jazz musician embellishes melody.... He weaves in riffs tailored for reading aloud and prompting interaction with the listener.... Sharkey's characters may remind some readers of a cross between Lane Smith and Yumi Heo, but the composition of her work reflects her own unique style.... Readers can only hope that this team of newcomers has more in store." -- Publishers Weekly "Publishers Weekly"
