In A Kingdom Far Away... A Collection of Russian Folk Tales

By pupils of School 325 in St Petersburg and Townfield Primary School in Wirral.

The publication of In a Kingdom Far Away ... is a highly commendable effort on the part of the pupils of Townfield Primary School in Wirral and School 325 in St Petersburg to bring together the ideas of youngsters living in two of the world’s most important countries. To understand each other’s histories and cultures is a major stepping-stone towards our living together comfortably in harmony and peace. It is most important that young people in each of our countries get to know each other, understand and respect each other’s way of living, and come to respect, also, how much we have in common.

This initiative it to be applauded and should serve as a model for similar developments by other schools in Britain and Russia. Robert N Wareing MP Secretary, All-Party British-Russian Parliamentary Group House of Commons, London, England
