Synopsis

Synopsis

Here between two covers you will find an inexhaustible source of delight for children and adults alike: the world's best folktales, chosen by the internationally known storyteller Jane Yolen. Over 150 tales are compiled from Iceland to Syria, Cuba to Papua.

This title is part of the Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library, which has been called a "splendid folklore series" by The Washington Post.
