"In fairy tales, when three brothers or sisters set out on a quest, usually only the youngest one is brave and clever enough to finish it." This is one of the insights in this charming picture book that introduces young readers to magic and enchantment. Written by renowned folklorist Rosalind Kerven, the book draws on traditional folk tales from Ireland, Africa, China, the Middle East, Native America, and other regions. It's all here in shimmering illustrations by Wayne Anderson: magic-makers; shape-shifters; important spells, wishes, and charms; magical travel; secret worlds; bewitchery; and more.
