Synopsis: Long ago, when Hungarians used to tell each other tales in the evenings, they thought up some of the most amazing things. In this edition, Hungarian-born Val Biro retells and illustrates a favorite selection of his country's stories. Among them, goblins rain from the sky; the Mayor's 'mare's egg' gives birth to a rabbit; and Amalfi, son of the apple, finds his destiny in a flying palace.

Review:
"Middle and secondary students will enjoy the latest paperbacks from the Oxford Myths and Legends series. Students are likely to remember a few of these stories...but most of the narratives will be unknown to them and will allow them to reexperience the folktale or legend as if newly encountered. The tales range from humble animal fables to the clever exploits of disinherited younger brothers who win their fortunes by outwitting trolls and other nasties, and to the heroic adventures of princes who confront opponents with bravery, honor, and grace."--Journal of Reading
