How would you hide from the gods? Could you tell a fox from a tricky kitsune? Or know which potion would you give all the knowledge in the world? This lovely collection of folktales introduces readers 7 to 11 to shapeshifter myths and stories from around the world. From a girl whose stepmother turned her into a dragon to a curious boy who becomes a wolf cub, from a princess who makes a deal with the Queen of Snakes to a god who became a fish but was caught in his own net, here are 15 tales from the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Scandinavia, with delicate silhouetted illustrations and a guide to the shapeshifting creatures featured here.
