Delightful collection

A delightful collection of stories. Eclectically drawn and well narrated .I love folklore and good narrative. It is always insightful, moralistic and both affords and encourages keen psychological observations and insights. Even the inanimate becomes animate in the mirror story .The mirror which reflects all the tawdry attributes of everyone in the house shines a light on how we all too often project our own shortcomings onto others at times.. A voracious tiger is outwitted and the reader learns how cats and dogs first came into conflict. People are people the world over and this book is timeless on that account. I loved it!
