Broad collection of folk and fairy tales from all over the world. Many have similarities to the more famous collections by Perrault & Grimm, but none of those collected/retold by them were included. Lots of wonderful stories, but I think I liked the first one best "The Man Without a Story." The way that I interpret it, each of us has a story to tell - even if it doesn't seem special to us. :)
