This collection is a treasure trove of the world's storytelling wisdom, ranging from the must-have favourites (Axe soup, Under the Banyan Tree) to lesser known stories that are at once compelling and unforgettable.
"Parents will enjoy reading these stories aloud, and children will absorb lessons about wisdom, told with kindness, humor, and simplicity."
"Balit's stylized illustrations retain a folk-art look and reference the origins of each selection through clothing and landscapes. Overall, this is a solid addition."
School Library Journal
"a useful addition to collections of international stories and tales."
