Review:
Gathered from the various spots on the globe that comprise the Hispanic heritage—from the Basques northeast and Celtic northwest corners of Spain through the Arab influences of southern Spain to the Americas, these twelve stories have been polished by the retellings from one generation to another; from grandmothers to grandchildren.

In this welcome addition to a folktale library, each story has an end-piece with specific information about the origins and versions of the tale.
