Fairy Tales From Many Lands, ed. by H. Herda

5 stars
One of those books where the axiom, you can't judge a book by its cover, holds true. The copied I had was a pea green color, tattered, and the binding was beginning to tear. One of those random pulls from the public library that you take home and are quite delighted you did. This proved to be a well edited collection that stayed true to its title. Containing tales from a multitude of origins including: Greece, Hungary, Germany, Switzerland, Britain, Finland, Russia, Italy, Spain, and Africa. The illustrations were as enjoyable as the stories. If you are looking for a book of tales check this one out.
