Around the World in 80 Tales by Saviour Pirotta
This is a great way to travel around the globe. This beautifully illustrated book takes readers across six continents with folktales from eighty different countries. Author Saviour Pirotta has written more than sixty fiction and non-fiction books for children and his works have been translated into ten languages. He has a special; interest in traditional legends and myths from around the world. The inside covers contain illustrated maps so readers can easily site where each story they read is set. There is even one from Australia called Boomerang. I was pleased to see stories from Bolivia, Chile and Argentina, three of my favourite travel destinations. The book is well organised and is probably the biggests and the most stunning addition to the Little Library of Rescued Books.
