Synopsis: Polish folk tales have a special character all their own, and some of the best stories have been gathered to create this sparkling collection. Among them are "The King Who Was Eaten by Mice," a cautionary tale from Gniezno, "The Gingerbread Baker's Bees" from Torun, "The Golden Duck" from Warsaw, the legendary story "The Dragon of Krakow," and "Queen Jurata and the Sea-Creatures," a story that explains why amber can be found lying all over the Baltic shores. Featuring Paul Hess' exuberant illustrations, these retellings uncover a fascinating land and its people.
