Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

DeSpain's second treasury of short folktales are written in his clear, unaffected style, making them readily accessible to children. Giants, clever creatures, leprechauns, heroes, heroines, and villains blend together for a perfect mixture of parable, myth, and fable. "Every tale is short, well illustrated, and eminently tellable".--Mother Earth News. 24 two-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

The twenty-two stories in this second volume of Splendid Tales to Tell are versions of traditional folk tales representing sixteen different countries and cultures. These stories of old retain their energy, wisdom and simple fun in these complicated times.
