“A time long ago, when the Moon and Sun were friends and shared the same sky, a strange man wandered down and even stranger path.”
In this folkloric tale, a man known only as the Stranger finds his way to another world and embarks on a journey fuelled by determination to take back what he has lost. Watched with growing interest by ancient celestial beings, he faces a different challenge at every turn and each one more tempting than the last. Can he resist the temptations, or will the Four Winds sway his heart with bribes cloaked as gifts?
This is a world of shadow and light, where the winds follow no particular direction and where even time has a will of its own.
Deeply rooted in dark, traditional storytelling and enriched with stunning olde worlde illustrations by Adam Oehlers, A Stranger’s Tale introduces familiar characters in an unfamiliar world. Rich in imagery and a nostalgic charm, Nataša Xerri brings a fresh new voice to age-old themes, as she weaves a story that has readers of all ages spellbound from beginning to end.
