One Hundred Favorite Folktales


One Hundred Favorite Folktales Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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." --New York Times Book Review

"Just relax and enjoy these delightful tales from all over the world--or better yet, read them aloud to some of your favorite children." --Quartet

"Should remain the standard tale anthology in English for years to come." --Folklore Forum
