'Once oh small children round my knee there were no stories on earth to hear.'
So begins Gail E. Haley's classic children's book and Caldecott medal winner, A STORY, A STORY.
For more than 30 years Haley's award winning books have captured the hearts and minds of readers young and old.
Throughout that time she has presented workshops, story telling, art demonstrations and puppetry programs in schools and libraries throughout the USA, Canada, England and Australia.
From Celts (THE GREEN MAN) to Cherokee (TWO BAD BOYS) to Appalachia (MOUNTAIN JACK TALES), Gail Haley's stories told in pictures and print celebrate cultural diversity.
The only person to have received both THE CALDECOTT MEDAL (A STORY, A STORY) and England's KATE GREENAWAY MEDAL (THE POST OFFICE CAT), Gail Haley brings a unique understanding of the art of storytelling to the children in your classrooms and media centers.
In addition to writing and illustrating award-winning children's books, Gail Haley has written several books on costume and puppetry. Her articles have also appeared in The Puppetry Journal. She has been a member of UNIMA and Puppeteers of America.
