Drawing a picture while telling a story is a tradition that can be found in cultures around the world-perhaps dating back to early cave paintings. No one knows when or where this unique form of storytelling originated, but for generations, drawing stories have delighted and informed listeners-”and they continue to fascinate audiences today. Renowned storyteller Anne Pellowski has traveled the world, collecting drawing stories from such diverse countries as Indonesia, Korea, Romania, Germany, Sweden, and Japan.

Here she presents more than 30 ready-to-tell tales, along with step-by-step directions for the ingenious illustrations that accompany them, and tips for engaging your audience in further learning. An added feature is the inclusion of 5 delightful handkerchief (hanky panky) stories, which originated in Europe in the 19th century. A valuable treasury for educators, storytellers, and folklorists.Drawing a picture while telling a story is a tradition that can be found in cultures around the world-perhaps dating back to early cave paintings.
