This one has taken a long time to come, almost two full months. Thank you for a most appropriate book for the Spurtle Sweepstakes and all the lovely goodies. I appreciate everything.

A nice easy read. Interesting how the legends and myths across different cultures bear more similarities than differences.

Woo! This sounds so fascinating! I'm currently reading two different volumes of modern fairytale retellings so this collection of Scottish Folk and Fairy Tales are a welcome addition! Thank you, mscar!

As mcsar mentioned, some of the stories have a familiar feel to them.
Gold-tree and Silver-tree brought forward thoughts of Snow White and I've read several iterations of Tam Lin.

I think my favorite story in this collection is The Lonely Giant by Alasdair MacLean which is about...you guessed it! a lonely giant. It's a predictable tale, so one that you already know what will happen and how it will end. But it was sweet.

Overall, I can't say that I was enthralled or impressed by the collection, but it was interesting and I'm glad I got to read them. :)

I found this book at the book buffet of the annual BCinDC holiday party in the new home of authorauthor. This book caught my eye because mass market paperbacks are very popular in my Little Free Library.

Thanks for this book, Spatial! It was fun seeing you today. Happy holidays!

I'm releasing this book for...

***The 2018 What's in a Name Release Challenge. The title of this book contains the names TI, AN, LE, SCOTT, LES, TAL and Al.
