Customer Reviews

"The story is made up of folk tales from around the world. The play is delightful and was perfect for our middle school actors. The props and scenery were simple, easy to collect and looked great. Everyone enjoyed the play."
Review by Maureen Arbeznik, Lakewood Catholic Academy, Lakewood, Ohio

Media Reviews

"A fun-filled globetrotting set of stories for youngsters, most with a little moral appended at the end, just like Aesop's Fables. There is a very much put-upon donkey and a very unhappy cap seller, thanks to some prankish monkeys. We have an extended African variation on the tortoise and the hare story. Finally, we meet Peter the Fool, a boy who gets spectacular results despite the fact that he is appropriately named." -The Montgomery County Sentinel
