A wonderful collection of more than a dozen little-known tales of magical fun from all over the globe. A beautifully illustrated edition of a classic compendium of tales from around the world.

Escape to a faraway mystical world where anything can happen: where a boy can find a belt that gives him amazing strength, where a frog can be a beautiful princess in disguise, and where princes can fly on magic carpets. Retold in wonderful detail by long-time Quentin Blake collaborator John Yeoman, these stories sparkle with enchantment, adventure, and a beautifully imagined mix of the familiar and unfamiliar.

Stories Include: The Blue Belt, Half-Man-Half-Lame-Horse, The Crystal Ship, The Five Strange Brothers, The Magic Handkerchief, The Pumpkin Tree, The Magic Cakes, The Frog Skin, The Three Old Crones, Prince Baki and the White Doe, The Old Man and the Jinni, The Poor Girl and Her Cow.
