ROUND THE WORLD TALES adapted by Steven Schutzman hosts three folklore plays from around the world that focus on the important themes of generosity and greed. In the Swedish tale, The Old Woman and the Tramp, a happy-go-lucky rhyming wanderer ingeniously brews up an outrageous soup to show a woman how to enjoy life again. The Japanese Tongue-Cut Sparrow tells how a wife’s cruelty to her husband’s pet ignites magical forces of good and evil to prove that people get what they deserve. In the third play, The Invisible Hunters from Nicaragua, two hunters gain the power of invisibility, but instead of using it to feed their village, they upset their tribe’s traditional balance with nature. A great collection of stories for child audiences.
