  • Stories are the lifeblood of human culture and more particularly, storytelling has sharpened social thinking, encouraged cooperation and been at the centre of human creativity and learning. In his forty years as an educator, Nigel Northcott has found stories a helpful way to explain, illustrate and explore points and issues. These one-hundred-and-one stories are a blend, and whilst none are blue, they are: old, new and borrowed. Several are stories that Nigel has heard or been told and for which there may be one or more ‘original’ sources or that ubiquitous pen of tradition. What is common to the stories is the element of a moral, a meaning or lesson to be learnt and pleasure in reading them.
