    very enjoyable stories

    The author apparently lived for a while as a girl in Brazil, where her Brazilian nursemaid, Theresa, told her folk stories about how the rabbit lost his tail, how the toad got his bruises, how the tiger got his stripes, why the lamb is meek, how the hen got speckles, how the monkey became a trickster, why the sea moans, how the Brazilian beetles got their gorgeous coats, and others. Evidently, she published them in various magazines such as Little Folks, Kindergarten-Primary Magazine, Everyland, Mayflower, and Story Tellers' Magazine, and then collected them into this book. Unfortunately, a Barnes and Noble search turned up nothing on either the title or the author. A used book search turned up seven titles by this author, including one copy of this book (for $32.81!). I picked up mine from a free table at a used curriculum sale, but if you ever see it in a used book store (for a reasonable price), I suggest that you get it because these Uncle Remus and Rudyard Kipling like stories are very interesting and enjoyable.
