This big, beautiful book offers 20 favorite tales from around the world that will tickle the funnybone of young listeners. While most of the tales are totally new to Americans and come from countries as far flung as Iran and Italy, the Bahamas and Borneo, children will be delighted to discover some tales with themes similar to their favorites, such as "Rumpelstiltskin" and "The Three Little Pigs." The brief, lickety-split retellings beg to be read aloud and the nearly 90 lively, colorful illustrations invite children to look at the book again and again.

This is a great bed-time story book. It is well written, the text flows and has interesting sounds and words. My 4 year old son loves it. My 7 year old son is also captivated by it.
