Such adorable stories, short and sweet!

This is a collection of folktales by some famous writers. Some stories were known to me while some were new. But all of them are amazing.

The story about a bird who wanted her egg back from the queen reminded me of a play I participated in as a kid and played the role of an elephant. My mom had stitched the truck for me. I wonder where it is now.

It’s a short and sweet read and I finished it in a matter of hours. Perfect to narrate to kids.
