Product Details

Praise

There are certain features that readers tend to expect of folktales—a bit of humor, a touch of trickery, magic, consequences, the upholding or destabilization of power—all of which can be found here. The book has an elegant appearance, illustrated with cut-paper collages that bring a contemporary tone to these ancient folktales. . . As the title states, this is indeed a book for everyone.

—Booklist

Aalders’ vivid, brilliantly colored cut-paper illustrations present insects and vegetables with the same loving level of detail as scenes of the Euphrates, palaces, and expansive deserts. . . . Short, witty, and direct, these tales make perfect short bedtime reads or interludes during the day. Pithy tellings accompanied by sumptuous illustrations make for a delightful collection.
—Kirkus Reviews

Short and pithy, often humorous, and occasionally poignant. . . . will prompt discussion about different versions of folktales and the role of immigration in spreading and altering stories.
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
