Amongst the one hundred folktales are such familiar tales as The Three Billy-Goats Gruff, Haensel and Gretel, Sleeping Beuaty, and some perhaps not so familiar, The Magic Bird, The Goose Girl, and The Pancake.
“If you can buy only one fairytale book a year, buy this. Why? Because the chooser knows more about the folktales of all countries than anyone else in the world, and the choice is the flower of the flock.” —New York Times Book Review
“Just relax and enjoy these delightful tales from all over the world—or better yet, read them aloud to some of your favorite children.” —Quartet
“Should remain the standard tale anthology in English for years to come.” —Folklore Forum
