Ages 5^-8. Fourteen countries are represented in this varied collection of folktales, which includes both the familiar and the lesser known. Scandinavian trolls appear in "The Big White Cat," Irish leprechauns are found in "The Field of Ragwort," and an ogre is part of the Japanese tale, "The Smallest Boy in the World." Other universal themes and characters, such as talking animals and foolish kings, are also included. This is by no means a comprehensive multicultural collection, but it does give a broad picture of the elements of folklore, and Moss' delightful watercolors are clever and detailed and nicely capture the flavor of the various countries.
