Nearly 200 characteristic and colorful traditional folk and fairy tales are brought together here in the only comprehensive edition available in English. Of the original 1945 edition, Eudora Welty wrote, "These Russian tales are rambunctious, full-blooded and temperamental. They are tense with action, magical and human, and move in a kind of cyclone speed...These tales are gorgeous."

Translated by Norbert Guterman from the collections of Aleksandr Afanas'ev; Illustrations by Alexander Alexeieff; Folkloristic commentary by Roman Jakobson

"A beautiful book. I recommend it to all readers, young and old, who are interested in the folktale and its unique qualities."--Isaac Bashevis Singer, The New York Times Book Review
