Once upon a time there was a range of stories that great-great-grandparents
told great-grandparents, who told grandparents, who told parents… who suddenly
stopped telling them. They are stories about life that spread radiance and
magic anytime, anywhere, and yet are at risk of being lost forever. But before they
disappear completely in the dark night, Ricardo Azevedo, a researcher of Brazilian
folklore and an exceptional storyteller, chose some of the most delightful tales
and wrote them down the way everyone likes to hear them: from parent to child.
