This superior collection of ten unfamiliar fairy and folk tales has each one told by a different author, thus reflecting the place from which the story springs, There are Afro-American, Australian Aboriginal, Scottish, Irish and Welsh contributions, each of them involving a magical occurrence. The collection will be of particular appeal to imaginative children who accept – and even revel in – fantastic happenings. The full page, full-color illustrations are appropriately romantic; the decorative borders and smaller color vignettes are handsome additions to a beautiful volume that will be treasured.
