While Greek myths are well known and amply represented, very few Greek folktales have been published in English. Now these acclaimed authors make 20 captivating folktales accessible to readers outside of Greece. Newly translated and retold, the stories range from the profound to the lighthearted, the haunting to the hilarious, and the spiritual to the secular. Numerous accompanying photographs and drawings illustrate aspects of Greek life and traditional folklore motifs. Perfect for storytimes and read-alouds, the tales will appeal to both young and old.
