From School Library Journal:

Grade 48 These 21 fairy tales are elegantly formatted: full-page, intricately bordered woodcuts in navy and tan open each story, and a simpler one-tone figure appears at the end, all on high-quality paper. Garner has been faithful to the oral tradition of early times. These stories are for the ear rather than the eye, the plot evolving through physical action and repetition (often in rhyme), with the language, full of unusual expressions and dialect, adding to the authentic style. Most (except for "Tom Tit Tot," "Kate Crackernuts" and "Mally Whuppy") are not found in present-day collections. Many are about poor peasants' superstitions and folk ways in rural England and belief in witches and bogles. In his introduction, Garner explains why the traditional stories of the fantastic and supernatural were relegated to children's literature by the middle of the 19th Century. Sources are given for the tales in this collection. Excellent material for reading aloud, for telling and for just plain reading enjoyment. Mary Wadsworth Sucher, Baltimore County Reading Services
