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." â€•New York Times Book Review
"Just relax and enjoy these delightful tales from all over the worldâ€•or better yet, read them aloud to some of your favorite children." â€•Quartet
"Should remain the standard tale anthology in English for years to come." â€•Folklore Forum
