Sure we'd all love to be able to go around telling stories about all the weird, scary, and just plain annoying people that we know. But the truth is, no one likes a gossip. Here, the irrepressible Jon Scieszka has found a way around that problem: he just makes like Aesop and changes all the people to animals or food, adds a moral to each story, and calls the stories fables!

Aza is far from beautiful. With pale skin and blood-red lips (not to mention ungainly size), she is seen as odd, at best. But Aza does have one blessing: a voice of astonishing beauty. In Ayortha, where singing is the main mode of communication, this gift is no small thing, and soon Aza finds herself rising at court.
