About this title


In this volume will be found not only many of the familiar ingredients of folklore, but many surprising Slavic twists as well. Greed and gullibility are justly punished; quick wits and ingenuity triumph over brutish strength every time; but these animals, the fox and the wild boar, the bear, the faithful dog, even a surprising cat who announces, I am Pan Kotsky! I am the most frightful animal in the woods. I tear to pieces whomever I please! -- are mirrors of human foibles and failings and reflect a humorous commentary on life in general.
