KIRKUS REVIEW

Softly luminous, graceful illustrations in four unusual colors contrast effectively with the simplicity of each brief fable retold and illustrated by Norah Montgomerie- from the annals of traditional legends. Lesser known fables from India, Scotland, England, Tibet and from the Aesop anthology have been selected, though the heroes and heroines may be familiar -- foxes, and wolves, fishermen and kings, robins and wrens, magicians and maidens. Each fable covers only two or three pages, lending itself nicely to follow-up discussion by youngsters in classroom storyhour.
