Water is a precious resource, essential for life.
Even storytellers admit that water is more important
than story in sustaining us from day to day.
But life without story would be unbearable and,
just as rain, rivers and reservoirs enable society to flourish,
so stories make sense of life and keep people connected,
informed and happy!
Immerse yourself in this playful anthology of Asian folktales.
Duck into a Japanese story ‘explaining’ why the sea is salty.
Swim in ancient stories addressing the great concern of our time
(insufficient water for our needs) or frolic in tales fantastical,
with a princess or an unruly dragon, then wallow in comical ones
where water is a barrier, not a blessing!
You need not bring a towel-just go with the flow
and Splish! Splash! Splosh!
