This well-researched and highly readable book presents myths and legends gathered from all over, including China, Japan, Egypt, Greece, the Caribbean, and North America. Accompanying these stories are pages of fascinating folk beliefs, sayings, and rhymes of skylore.Jane Ray's sumptuous illustrations, rich with silver and gold, are more exquisite than ever.
