A World of Folktales, Vol. 1

These are folktales from around the world by various authors. It is worth noting the publisher's summary stating this collection contains "Eight fantastic stories" is false. In fact, some of the 8 authors contributed multiple folktales. Consequently, the total number of folktales contained is more than 8. Bottom line: Folktales enjoyable for the young and young at heart.
