The Storyteller

By Evan Turk ( Atheneum Books for Young Readers – 2016 )

Long ago, the fertile Kingdom of Morocco formed near the edge of the great, dry Sahara. It had fountains of cool, delicious water to quench the dangerous thirst of the desert, and storytellers to bring the people together. But as the Kingdom grew, all the people forgot the dangers of the desert, and they forgot about the storytellers, too. All but one young boy, who came to the Great Square for a drink and found something that quenched his thirst even better: wonderful stories by the last storyteller.
