The Lovereading4Kids comment
Full of wonder, this is a stunning collection of enchanting folk stories with a timeless and universal appeal. Richard Monte captures the optimistic spirit of Poland in stories which delight on account of their magic and surprise.
The Mermaid of Warsaw and Other Tales from Poland by Richard Monte
Enchanting, wicked and often very funny, Poland's folk tales are one of the great treasures of Central Europe. Crowned by the story of The Mermaid of Warsaw, the eight colourful tales in this collection include Skarbnik's Second Breakfast, set deep in the Wieliczka salt mines, The Turnip-Counter from Karkonosze and The Copper Coin of Wineta, alongside stories from Poznan and the Polish lakes. Paul Hess's stylish illustrations make this a collection to delight children everywhere.
