2019 French Review


Sans frontière linguistique ni culturelle, ces fables ignorent aussi celles du temps. Au sein du recueil, les paradoxes temporels abondent.

Unique retelling… may well jolt literary sensibilities tuned to the solemnity or quaintness of our best known versions of animal fables.
— San Francisco Chronicle

Pungent and vigorous. . . a wide range of appeal.

Library Journal

When Ramsay Wood retells a story he makes a proper job of it: not for him those pale imitations of a nobel original which is what your average reteller palms off on his readers.

The Times

A beautiful book full of mirth and human interest and unsentimental wisdom and vigorous writing.

Boston Globe

Jewels of story-writing, narrated with the psychological insight, subtle rhythms and changes of pace of a veteran. Playful, allusive, richly ambiguous, teasing in their narrative complexity and yet deceptively clear in their resolutions: immersing oneself in the world of this trickster is to savour the pleasure of reading at its most intense. . . .
What Ramsay has done over the last thirty years is to have made the version for our time.

Michael Wood, author & broadcaster of The Story of India

Wood’s superb stories should be set alongside Italo Calvino’s retelling of the folk tales of Italy. No higher praise is necessary.

Carlos Fuentes

One almost forgets these are animals, speaking and acting. Adults interested in the history of folklore should be joined by children in reading these colourful tales
