1 Scheherazade's Cat Zerner, Amy; Zerner, Jessie Spicer
Tuttle Publishing 1993 080481807x / 9780804818070 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Clean crisp bright. No marks. Dust jacket gloss is slightly scuffed. New protective cover . These nine skillfully rendered tales are none the worse for their New Age mindset. The Zerners, a mother and daughter team, bring sensitivity without sanctimony to their storytelling. "The Turquoise Sandals," a flavorful Egyptian story which the authors claim to be a model for Cinderella puts its European cousin to sexist shame; its heroine is a reader who prefers freedom to adoration, and her beauty is "only the outer reflection of her even more beautiful inner qualities." A Native American yarn, "Sister Bear," celebrates the wisdom and special powers of a girl who eschews "the traditional paths." Other tales are culled from Peru, South Africa, Hawaii and China. Each entry is bordered in a different intricate and rich tapestry border, and illustrated by a single full-page collage painting, exotic in texture and multi-ethnic in imagery. All ages. Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. ; 0.7 x 11.1 x 8.7 Inches; Nine traditional folktales creatively retold and lavishly illustrated using the fabrics of each country to convey the origin of each fable. 49836
