Synopsis

Luxurious, vibrant illustrations, a breadth of stories, large format, and a great price make this collection of myths, legends, and folktales a must for every family. Including more than 30 stories from the world's six most populated continents, this book contains beloved tales from ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt as well as favories stories from the British Isles, Scandinavia, and Americas and lesser-known tales from such countries as Japan, India, and Uganda.

Each story is brief-great for bedtime read-alouds or story hours-and filled with heroes, animals, gods, and monsters who are sure to keep readers and listeners enthralled. This lavishly illustrated collection captures the intrigue and imagination that have kept these stories alive throughout the centuries.
