Excerpts from the inside flap: Heroes and heroines, monsters and villains, all come together in these tales of courage, daring and romance from all over the world. Readers will meet popular heroes like Robin Hood, William Tell, Roland and Perseus, as well as lesser-known characters such as Danko and Hinemoa, in stories from countries as far apart as New Zealand and Finland. All twenty-five stories have introductions which set the scene for the tales that follow - stirring tales entertainingly told. Some will be new to young readers, and open up fields they will want to explore further. The book is illustrated in full color throughout with superbly evocative illustrations by the outstanding artist Victor Ambrus. This unique collection of world legends and mythology will occupy a special place on children's bookshelves everywhere.
