Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The twenty-four tales themselves are eminently readable . . . constitute a very significant contribution to the history of folklorists. To the readership they offer enlightenment as well as entertainment."

Marvels & Tales: Journal of Fairy-Tale Studies

"Thanks to ABC-CLIO for bringing to us one of the gems from the golden age of folklore discovery. This, and the other half dozen volumes in this series, deserve a place in every story buff's library as a prime example of the best in traditional storytelling."
