George Shannon has loved books and cookies since he was too young to walk. His mother baked him cookies; both parents read him stories. As an adult George has written many books, and baked (and eaten) too many cookies to count. His favorite cookies to bake for friends are orange chocolate chip shortbread cookies. Picking a favorite cookie to eat is too hard!

Julie Paschkis is a painter and an award-winning illustrator of more than fifteen books for children. These picture books include folk tales, poetry, and biography. She has also been exhibiting her paintings for twenty years, and a love of pattern and of folk art shows in her work. The bottom line is that she loves to make things: paintings, books, designs, and cookies. Her favorite cookie is a little nut cookie, and her favorite cookie name is "rugelach."

George Shannon currently resides in Bainbridge Island, in the state of Washington. George Shannon was born in 1961.

Reviews - What do customers think about More Stories to Solve: Fifteen Folktales from Around the World?

Fun and exciting book!  Apr 1, 2006
I read this to my third grade class and it really helps their critical thinking skills. The stories are so fun and sometimes I am stumped!
Logic outside the box - pure fun  Sep 8, 2000
This sequel is worthy of its predecessor; it too consists of folktales, very concisely told, that in some sense are a riddle, a puzzle, a play on words ... These stories are presented as problems to solve.

A major strength of the book is the variety of sources of the tales - Korean, Liberian, Kasmiri, Russian, Bengali, Chilean, Mexican, Burmese; in fact many of the stories could have come from any of a number of cultures. The illustrations add to the interest of the book for its intended audience.

The only weakness is that it offer no alternative answers or requires knowledge that may not be familar to the reader. If children are reading the book independently, they may not have the confidence to recognize that their answer is a clever as the one given in the text.

This is a fun book that should be enjoyed by parent and child.
