KIRKUS REVIEW

 Another attractive, well-planned volume in the style of The Diane Goode Book of American Folk Tales & Songs (1989). Here are 12 brief, well-sourced stories (some very brief) and five songs, all in the best traditional versions. Many are familiar and deservedly popular (``The Magic Pot''; ``On Top of Spaghetti''); several traditions are represented (Jewish, Hispanic, Iranian, Ashanti). Goode's many funny, artfully designed color illustrations and decorative borders provide an unusually inviting setting for the comical entries. A perfect gift book that will also find many library uses. (Folklore. 4-10)
