The Pearl in the Grass book cover

Commissioned By: John Harris is one of only a handful of full time professional Storytellers working in Britain, and the only one who works exclusively with children and young people.

Purpose: To protect this very precious story. And here's a review of the book: "John Harris's skill as a professional storyteller is evident in his retelling of this Chinese folk tale.... gossiping neighbours, wicked robbers and a terrifying dragon all lead to a hugely satisfying end." -Sybil Hannavy - The School Librarian magazine.
