For her third collection, acclaimed author and illustrator Jane Ray ventures into forests, jungles, mountains, and even imaginary worlds to find stories about animals of all kinds: rough-skinned elephants, yellow-eyed tigers, hulking great bears, elegant springing antelope, wily rabbits, and more. The tales—which feature transformation, magic, empathy, kindness, and trickery—include: "The Singing Ringing Tree," "Theseus and the Minotaur," "How the Rhinoceros Got his Skin," and "The Leopard’s Promise."
