Following on from the animal tale from Ethiopia, our storybook journey now takes us to China: our Chinese story is called “The Two Melons” and it will constitute the 2nd volume in the series of stories produced by the SARIAS Foundation. It has been translated into German and will be presented to children in an accessible form by a storyteller. The story is currently awaiting its artistic illustrations.
“The Two Melons” is about a good woman and a bad woman. The good woman devotedly cares for an injured bird despite her poverty, while the bad woman has a high opinion of herself and thinks only of getting rich quickly. Both women are in for a big surprise when they cut open the huge melon in their yard… but you’ll have to read the book to find out more!
