Editorial Reviews

?An excellent introduction summarizes the arguments against folk tales....as well as those praising the tales... .Author, title, and subject indexes make material on particular topics easy to locate within the three main sections: Literature, Education, Psychology. Should be of great value to educators, psychologists, historians and all scholars who are concerned with folk literature and its influence, especially its effect on the young.?-Choice
