About the Author

The tales have been lovingly collected and translated into English by the publisher Sergiej Nowikow, who views himself as being Polish by spirit and Polish in his deeds, Polish to the core.


In order to collect the fairy tales in this book for you, we had been interviewing Polish natives from 1992 to 2012.

These tales are radiant with the Polish people's vitality, filial love for one's parents, and the energy of kindness.

They were collectively created by the Polish nation. Many authors of various origins have adopted these folk motives since then. However, this compilation presents the original folk versions of the tales.
