The Princess and the the Swans

Come with us to a land far away and a time long ago! Come and meet princesses and kings, talking monkeys, a wise judge, a shrewd thief, a foolish snake, a flock of swans and many other interesting characters. Visit places like a palace on an island, a jungle filled with exotic animals and a healing well.

This delightful collection of short stories is sure to capture the imagination of children and adults alike. With simple but engaging language, vivid illustrations, and important lessons to be learned from every story, this is a book to be read again and again.
