Every Hero Has a Story
The Prince and Princess are caught in a flash flood. Lost and scared, they wander into a crowded shed. The people are gathering there on that particular night to tell lots and lots of stories. They are invited inside to listen and they tell a few stories of their own. The people take turns telling tales one at a time and in between, the book comes back to the Prince and Princess.
In one of the stories, called “How Rabbit Drank Boiling Water,” everyone wanted to marry the princess so the king made a test that whoever could drink boiling water could have her hand. You can’t drink boiling water. Sly Rabbit tricked them. He allowed the water to cool down before he drank it. He admitted he cheated and the princess decided to marry him anyway. This story was hilarious.
One of the things I like about this book is that while most books have one story, this has eighteen. Two of my other favorite stories are “Jack and the Beanstalk” and “The Contest.” Most of them are fairy tales, but some are adventure stories. All are wonderful.
