Goode continues her fine series of folklore anthologies with this excellent collection. Readers will enjoy finding familiar tales such as "The Shoemaker and the Elves," "Teeny-Tiny," and "Wiley and the Hairy Man" alongside rarer treasures such as "Anansi and the Plantains" from the West Indies and "Little Lella" from Italy. Youngsters will chuckle over "How Big-Mouth Wrestled the Giant" in which a none-too-bright braggart outsmarts an even dimmer giant. Storytellers will want to add to their repertoires the California tall tale of "Lovesick Lopez," who becomes too fond of the pigs he raises. "Three Strong Women" and "Managing Molly" star female heroines. Also included are poems by Flora Fearne, Eve Merriam, Lilian Moore, and others.
