Octagon Press Ltd, 1991 - Social Science - 410 pages
No ordinary collection of tales, this anthology was the result of extensive research that led Shah to conclude that there is a certain basic fund of human fictions which recur again and again throughout the world and never seem to lose their compelling attraction. This special paperback version of World Tales concentrates on the essentials, the text of the stories, and omits the illustrations which were part of a previous edition.

I am re-reading this book for the umpteenth-millionth time...I no longer have access to the illustrated copy from my elementary school library, but this edition is still awesome. It has stories that I've never located anywhere else, and I am a devoted lover of fairy stories/myths/parables. Read full review
