KIRKUS REVIEW

An anthology of stories from different nations which pivot about the sea. An Egyptian sailor encounters a benevolent sea monster; the Australian bush animals appease the frog in the moon; the Viking slave girls form the Maelstrom, etc. In all, twenty-six stories, some humorous, some full of terror, but all conveying the unique wonder and awe with which man regards the ocean. By the anthologist of Tales of a Chinese Grandmother.
