The title says it all. It is a book made up of lots of tales from all over the world. Divided by theme, it is great for casual reading or just to broaden your knowledge of fairytales.

This is a superb effort to collect the origins of the world... A book of books, an edition or children that there are just a few...

This book has many different tales from around the world. It has different themes which are in each tale. I would use this book to show children how different cultures used to tell stories. I would recommend this book to children in grades 4 and up.
