KIRKUS REVIEW

From Russia, Japan, China, Persia, India and Turkey come this procession of fairy tales with a full array of princes, princesses and an assortment of sorceresses and supernatural beings. Virtue rewarded characterizes the collection as a whole -- with filial loyalty, courage and compassion in the ascendant. Each sortie included has a short introduction in which Miss Buck discusses the national characteristics of the folklore it represents. Booksellers will note the cash and carry value of the editor's name and librarians will appreciate the international roundup of Oriental story material.
