Counter A companion volume to the author's NURSERY TALES AROUND THE WORLD, which received the Aesop Medal from the American Folklore Society, this book contains fifteen folktales for a slightly older than nursery audience. The tales are grouped according to the familiar stories they resemble (Tales like "The Three Pigs," Tales like "The Bremen Town Musicians," for example), and come from twelve different countries plus three American traditions. Each section will have a brief introduction, and there will be a volume introduction and concluding source notes as well. Like NURSERY TALES AROUND THE WORLD, this book will be illustrated throughout in full color and will be an excellent gift book as well as a must-have for library collections.
