Synopsis

Hidden Tales from Eastern Europe by Antonia Barber

The walls of Eastern Europe have recently crumbled to reveal fascinating hidden cultures. To reflect this more open perspective, here is a collection of little-known folk tales from Poland, Slovakia, Russia, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia and Romania. The seven elegantly told and beautifully illustrated tales create a timely collection to stimulate children's interest in their European neighbours.

Reviews

Told in folkloric cadence, Barber's story is about the rescue of baby Carrie ... Independent readers will enjoy it on their own, and it will be a fine choice for read-aloud as well.
