The Storyteller's Secrets

(3) 4-6 Illustrated by Peter Bailey. Twins Toby and Tess share their lunch with an old man named Teller; in return he spins them a story in rhyme. Over subsequent meetings, the bearded man (eventually revealed as Merlin) tells the children four more tales knit together by prose. Old-fashioned-looking silhouettes and black-and-white line drawings illustrate the well-designed volume.
