KIRKUS REVIEW

Twenty delightful tales from Italy reflect the good humor, the simple piety and Latin liveliness one would hope to find in such a group of stories. Here are pithy fables, humorous skirmishes between rich and poor, and episodes mischievous and saintly. Flavorful and brief these retain distinctively the character of the country which spawned them. Some represent the conflict between man and the elements told in language which should be a pleasure to read aloud.
