KIRKUS REVIEW

This can be used in story hours for the more mature of the listeners, but the age at which the tales themselves carry spontaneous appeal seems to be from fourth to seventh grade. Traditional stories are here, legends from the provinces, courtly tales of the middle ages, and epic hero tales -- and it is interesting to note how the quality of the stories, the particular regional and period flavor, differs from, for example, the collections of myths and legends from the British Isles in previous books in this series.
