Additional Information and Resources


"An excellent resource for storytellers interested in developing or adding to a repertoire of world folktales. This book is a true sampler, with entries arranged alphabetically by country or region and only one or two selections from each location. ...Stories are brief, mostly two to three pages long, making them a good length for memorization and for sharing with a group. Each is accompanied by suggested activities and a list of similar stories and a reference to motif and type numbers. A brief biography of each storyteller is also included. VERDICT Those with an interest in tales from around the world would do well to consider this well-organized compendium from a renowned expert in the field. Misti Tidman"  ...School Library Journal
