Notes

Description
"This ... story begins with an old woman telling a tale to a group of children in a playground. One of the boys can't understand what she is saying, so another offers to translate. The old woman's tale is inspired by the Tower of Babel story ... Told entirely through dialogue, moving back and forth between the old woman's tale and the exchange between the two boys, this ... story raises questions about what divides us and what brings us together, in spite of all our differences"--,Provided by publisher.
