A WORLD TREASURY
OF MYTHS, LEGENDS AND FOLKTALES:
Stories from Six Continents
Editors: Renata Bini and Mikha Fiodorov

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 favorites stories from the British Isles, Scandinavia, and the 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.

From Publishers Weekly
From the Judgment of Paris to Algonquian tales of Gluskap, the grandly scaled (9 x 12/") A World Treasury of Myths, Legends, and Folktales: Stories from Six Continents, edited by Renata Bini, trans. from the Italian by Alexandra Bonfante-Warren, illus. by Mikhail Fiodorov, retells 33 stories from every continent except Antarctica. Dynamic color illustrations on every page reflect the provenance of each tale--e.g., pictures accompanying a story about the gods Izanagi and Izanami suggest a traditional Japanese style, while those for a tale of Isis and Osiris share the same perspective and style as Egyptian tomb paintings.
