"This is a wonderful and wonder-filled collection, which testifies not only to the breadth of the human imagination but also to the enduring importance of my favourite virtue, hope. There couldn't be a better time to bring these stories back into print. We need them more than ever."--Philip Pullman
"This is a valuable collection of fairy tales, fables, and allegories published in Britain's socialist press during its turn-of-the-century heyday. The stories use strategies of defamiliarization and decontextualization to make their case for the social values of equality and cooperation in the simplest of terms."--Elizabeth Miller, University of California, Davis
"As plain-language, kid-friendly introductions to socialist politics, [the Workers' Tales stories] are at once intriguing historical artifacts and, in a few cases, striking allegories that remain pertinent now, even on the other side of the Atlantic."---J.C. Pan, The Atlantic
