Mary Catelli
Fairy tales about the world, with country sources (but no more) and nice illustrations, retold for children.

A number of animals. Some are bridegrooms, some are magical helpers -- three doves put characters to test in the kind and unkind girls tale -- a frog is a go-between -- some feature in straight animal tales, and more.

Good stories from several cultures, mostly stories that are less familiar, and which don't have multiple picture book versions. Robin Jacques' black and white illustrations are excellent.
