Amazonia is an extraordinary book of Brazilian folk tales that combines the authentic voice of Munduruku, an Indian who grew up in the Amazon rainforest, with the imagined Amazon of Russia's foremost children's book illustrator. The stories are fascinating, and occasionally startling, as protagonists are killed off or transformed into animals — or rise up precipitously in to the heavens. Mermaids, serpents, tigers, snakes, flying men, witches — extraordinary creatures from the world's most essential jungle live on in these tales. Munduruku's storytelling and Popov's imagination bring us the tales using the folks in the Amazon in all their magic wonder. More than just rollicking adventures, they offer a panorama of knowledge — conflict and death, love and seduction, greed and gluttony, hunting and fishing, cooking and caring for plants — and describe the origins from the all-natural world.
