Monster Stories

For children who are first embarking on independent reading, the four titles in this series will entice them with colorful folktales from four different cultures. Books are numbered one through four, which will encourage children to move on to the next book and collect the series.  Ideal for ages 6-11.

This Italian tale tells how Pírolo, the King’s youngest gardener, sets out on an impossible quest which frightens even the bravest of the King’s knights. Can he steal a magic feather from the back of the terrifying feathered ogre who eats tasty boys and girls for his supper?

Mischievous Ntombi, the Chief’s daughter, isn’t at all afraid of the fearsome Ilunge River. But when she goes to swim there, she enrages the Mother of Monsters, with her gigantic head, bulging eyes and thick, slimy scales, causing more trouble than she could ever imagine!

Ramay lives with his mother in the high mountains of the Himalayas. He is lazy and never helps at home; he would rather spend his days dreaming. His Mum is at her wit’s end. One day, she tells Ramay to go away and he is not to come back until he has mended his ways. What will become of Ramay as he sets out, and whom will he encounter along the way?

Discover what happens when a brave woman and her husband are kind to a savage and terrible Chenoo. Instead of letting themselves be scared of this man-eating monster, they feed him caribou meat, provide him with clothes and make him snug and warm in their teepee. Can they melt his frozen heart?
