KIRKUS REVIEW

Half a dozen or so eastern European folk tales collected here in a volume handsomely illustrated by Irena Lorentowicz. From the Ukraine, the story of the hawk and the hen tells why a lost string of pearls keeps the chickens pecking at the dirt; The Gull is a Finnish fairy tale about a smith who turned a witch's daughter into a mourning dove because she refused to be his bride; a horse legend is representative of the hard riding Osenete people of the Caucasus. Anthropological values. Retold with charm, a good gift book.
