    The book by Ruth Manning-Sanders arrived on March 11, 2013. It was well-wrapped and in excellent condition. I enjoy the stories, and will pass it on to my grandson.

    This is an utterly delightful book. We have purchased it a couple of times, a local book sale and once from Amazon when that one got lost in a move. Its dragons have real personalities - frequently grumpy, sometimes savage, some downright nice when you get to know them. Our grandson Curtis used to ask for these stories over and over when he was young. Later he followed in my footsteps as a voracious reader of fantasy and science fiction, first loving the various book series I pointed him at, later finding and guiding me to other authors. And it all pretty much started with the wonderful stories in this book, which captured his imagination. He never tired of hearing them and we never tired of reading them to him. Buy it in hard cover, as pages will fall out after the 15th read otherwise! Also, the illustrations are wonderful and may not have been included in the paperback.

    This is a splendid anthology of 14 fairy tales from around the world that have been collected and retold by Ruth Manning-Sanders. It is one in a long series of such anthologies by the author. In the foreword, Manning-Sanders states that "not all dragons want to gobble up princesses." She thus includes tales of kind and proud dragons, along with the savage ones. Also in the foreword, the author relates a condensed version of Saint George and the Dragon and concludes, "[Y]ou will not find St George and the Dragon among the stories in this book; because this is a book of fairy tales, and the story of St George belongs more properly to legend."Tales in this book are:1. Constantes and the Dragon (Greece)2. Chien Tang (China)3. Stan Bolovan (Romania)4. My Lord Bag of Rice (Japan)5. The Nine Doves (Greece)6. The Yellow Dragon (China)7. Pepito (Greece)8. Yanni (Macedonia)9. The Dragon and His Grandmother (Germany)10. The Thirteenth Son of the King of Erin (Ireland)11. Baskets in a Little Cart (China)12. The Prince with the Golden Hand (Slav)13. The Three Dogs (Germany)14. The Dragon of the Well (Greece)
