Review:
Older readers with a soft spot for romantic folk and fairy tales will be pleased to discover this exotic sampling of Vietnamese tales richly embellished by Trina Schart Hyman's ultra-romantic illustrations. The author provides helpful afterwords to each of her six tales, and aficionados of the genre will recognize many common ingredients shared with more familiar Western folk and fairy tales.
