Overview

When people told themselves their past with stories, explained their present with stories, foretold the future with stories...the best place by the fire was kept for...The Storyteller!

Finally back in print and in a gorgeous new hardcover, Jim Henson's The Storyteller features nine folktales based on Henson's Emmy-award winning television series, beautifully told by Academy Award-winning director Anthony Minghella. Before writing the Academy Award-winning classic The English Patient and being nominated for the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Talented Mr. Ripley, the late Anthony Minghella worked alongside Jim Henson to bring forgotten tales of European folklore to vivid life on television. The series debuted to critical acclaim and in deference to the tales that inspired Henson and the series, Minghella adapted the nine stories into prose. Accompanied by stunning illustrations from an array of artistic talent and style, these tales are the early work of an incredible storyteller and are part of a series of novels being printed by Archaia and the Jim Henson company that celebrate the creative spirit of Jim Henson and his collaborators. In his introduction Minghella dedicates the book and these stories to his son Max, writing, "I have tried to fill his days with their magic just as he has filled my days with his own." Now, long after taken out of print, fans can share the magic of these stories and the master storyteller who crafted them, with readers of all ages.
