Description

"I came here to seek the leaves that hung but never grew."

Enter a magical world where ogres and dwarfs exist, enchantments and quests abound, and robbers and witches wreck havoc on heroes and heroines alike in this essential collection of over 40 folk and fairy tales that nurture and sustain the collective memory of the Roma.

Often shared through the exploits of one of the most popular figures found in folktales, a lad named Jack, come and join him as he saves the King of the Fishes and marries the Queen of the Fairies, battles giants and dragons, and much more.

Rooted in the oral tradition made infamous by the Brothers Grimm, discover variants of famous folktales, including those of Cinderella and Aladdin, Hansel and Gretel and Snow White, alongside other tales recounting stories of Master Thieves and Robber Bridegrooms, Wonder Childs and Dragon Slayers.

This collection is a treasure trove of distinctive folk and fairy tales recorded by the folklorist, John Sampson, and narrated by members of the Wood family of North Wales, Cornelius Price of South Wales, and the English husband and wife duo of Johnny and Wasti Gray.
