Throughout the world, nothing is so universally loved by young and old alike as a good story. And what makes a good story better is that something extra to embellish it - clever line drawings that follow the plot; a collection of nesting dolls, one for each character; a cat's cradle of string symbolizing the action. Here is the unusual collection of stories, each of which requires the storyteller to use string, nesting dolls, sand painting, drawings, or musical instruments. A piece of string can be manipulated into shapes to illustrate the story of an old weaver bothered by a mosquito, while a series of lines on a black-board make the tale of "The Wild Bird" come alive. Chosen from all over the world - Africa, Japan, America, Australia, central Europe - each story is accompanied by clear, step-by-step instructions as well as line illustrations, so even a beginner can become a skilled storyteller. THE STORY VINE is an ideal and unique source book for librarians, teachers, storytellers, parents and grandparents - anyone who wants to captivate listeners with a well-told tale.
