These are the historical myths from Poland. there are some stories I am familiar with and some that I had never heard. My husband is a re-enactor and plays the part of a Polish Fool in the Kings courts. As a fantastic story-teller this enhances his performance with new stories and history. I recommend this product to anyone interested in history and myths. The seller was prompt, the packaging was excellent and the contect absolutely lovely.

Kids like this book. Wasn't a huge page turner. I think they may like it in a couple more years. Would recommend for 11-15 year olds personally.

a good tourist background for visiting Gizycko Poland and Warsaw. The mermaid and the other stories are local legend and lore and definitely a good read.

My granddaughter loved the book. she is 8 and can read at a 5th grade level so she really enjoyed the books. She really liked the Just Grace because she name is Grace.

The book was very damaged on the lower part of the book
I wanted to frame this book because I collect mermaids but it is unsuitable for framing.
The stories were good.
I purchased this book because it had a list of Polish folktales that were not familiar to me. I expected a good deal more from this book and was largely disappointed. Additionally, there was not much in an explanation as to the sources and purposes for the stories.
