Ann Redisch Stampler loves folk tales! She is an award-winning picture book writer, most recently receiving the National Jewish Book Award for The Rooster Prince of Breslov.

The Cats on Ben Yehuda Street is her latest picture book.

The Wooden Sword, a folk tale from Afghanistan, is the very funny, slightly scary, and ultimately uplifting story of what happens when a good shah and a poor shoemaker cross paths in old Kabul.

She also writes for young adults.
