From Booklist:

Prepare to be whisked away to foreign lands in the Folktales from around the World series. Each title presents a story native to a particular country or continent through simple text (which begins with “Once upon a time” or “Many years ago”) and illustrations that stylistically represent the culture. The Tiger, the Brahman, and the Jackal retells an Indian folktale in which a Brahman unlocks a tiger from a cage and then must figure out how not to become his snack. A world map, with the featured country highlighted and labeled, appears at the end of each entry along with a one-page afterword that explains common characteristics of folktales, from the prevalence of magical elements to their moralistic nature, as well as basic country facts. A nice introduction to the oral storytelling tradition for both classroom settings and one-on-one sharing. Grades K-3. --Ann Kelley
