This worldwide collection of tales features statues, adderstones, cliffs and quarrymen, magic stones, gems, fossils and stones spinning across water. Most are rewritten folk tales, and some are about 'real' people. Jenny Moon tells hundreds of tales a year to children and adults, and has studied why stories are so important to humans. An aim of this entertaining book is to share her fascination with rock and stone, whether in physical form, history or folk wisdom and lore. Wound into the tales are interesting facts and observations about rock and stone that make this book more than just a book of stories. AUTHOR: Jenny Moon is a professional storyteller and author. Her most recent book was 'Using Story in higher education and professional development' and she runs workshops on storytelling in educational contexts. She is the Ambassador for the Jurassic Coast Trust which means she is considerably involved in events concerning rock and stone, fossils and earth history. She lives in Lympstone, Devon. 30 b/w illustrations
