A selection of 50 Slovak folk tales assembled from the collections of folklorist Pavol Dobsinsky. The translator seeks to preserve the poetic qualities of the originals, and the book includes an introduction to the genres of the folktale and the specifics of Slovak tales.

The folktale characters of Popolvar and Johnny Pea may not be as well known as Rumpelstiltskin, nor Brother Birdie as beloved as the Ugly Duckling, but their Slovak heritage is as rich in charm and piquancy as any in the world. This volume makes that folk culture available for English-language readers. Most of the fifty tales assembled here from the collections of folklorist Pavol Dobsinsky are translated into English for the first time. The poetic qualities of the originals have been preserved for the reader's delight, and the book includes an insightful introduction to the genres of the folktale and the specifics of Slovak tales.
