    This is another one of those Paper Tiger books which some how does not appear on their publication list what is the cover another wonderful Robert Ingpen piece does not appear on the versions listed here on GR hmmAnyway what you have here is a tour of the world through its folk tales and fables pretty straight forward and to be honest rather common Right well there is a surprise here now I am no expert not even close to folk tales and fables but I have heard and read many of them and see references and derivations of many However this book still manages to catch me out with stories I have never heard of before which is wonderful I think there are too many of these stories being lost to the world or worse merged and converted in to soulless hybrids that lose their original importance and powerI think one of the reasons is that who ever selected these stories intentionally went for stories which symbolised the country they were focusing on not just what we perceive them to bethe second and I think evocative aspect and I think why it appears as a Papertiger book is the artwork done by the subtle and sublime artist Robert Ingpen I love his work which for me symbolises the 80s where to me reading and exploring books was at its intense and magical This book is a rare find in this format and one I am ever grateful for finding if ever there is a chance for someone else to read it I highly recommend it

    I read the story of The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs and the message was about greed which is an intriguing theme and I enjoyed it I also read The Best Teacher which is a folk tale from Rumania and the story was humorous and left a good message about doing things yourself Lastly I read an English folk tale entitled Lazy Jack This folk tale is about a not so bright boy and how good luck finds him also in a humorous way I enjoyed all three stories and this particular book has a large collection of folk tales from all over the world

    Deeply inaccurate especially in regard to Russian and Mesopotamian mythology and folk lore Karen? Really? How about Vasilisa? Also get Enkidu's name right damn it
