KIRKUS REVIEW

From the British editor of Storytellers' Choice (1964) and Second Storytellers' Choice (1965), and like them complete with notes for the teller, a conservative collection of traditional and original tales (some timeless, some just old-fashioned) broken by well-known songs (""I Went to the Animal Fair"") and a few poems that will require some talent to put over with American audiences. Among the stories are Picard's version of ""The Death of Balder,"" Singer's ""Zlateh the Goat,"" Dickens' spooky ""The Signalman,"" and Ursula Moray Williams' strictly seasonal ""The Good Little Christmas Tree."" An extra.
