I enjoyed this collection that features a number of cynical Danish fairy tales, a few Japanese and Sicilian stories, and two very harsh Bassuto stories. There are also a few wistful Hans Christian Andersen stories such as "The Fir-Tree" and "The Snow Queen", included, and one surprisingly weird ghost story, "The Princess in the Chest".
