Above all things, the most fun for a young Oni is to get into a crockery shop. Once there, he jumps among the cups and dishes, hides in the jars, straddles the shelves and turns somersaults over the counter. -from "The Oni on His Travels" This collection of traditional myths and legends from Holland sings with the spirit of that charming land, and delves into its culture to illuminate the nation's sprightly personality. First published in 1918, it features a bewitching selection of fairy tales: - The Entangled Mermaid - The Boy Who Wanted More Cheese - The Elves and Their Antics - The Legend of the Wooden Shoe - The Curly-Tailed Lion - Santa Klaas and Black Pete - The Goblins Turned to Stone - and many more. Children and adults alike will continue to find this a delightful read today. American author, educator, and theologian WILLIAM ELLIOT GRIFFIS (1843-1912) was born in Philadelphia. He is also the author of Welsh Fairy Tales, The Firefly's Lovers, The Unmannerly Tiger, Brave Little Holland, and Bonnie Scotland.
