Joseph Jacobs helped popularize many fairy tales .

Soils and national characteristics differ, but fairy tales are the same in plot and incidents the world over. So proved the leading British folklorist Joseph Jacobs (1854–1916) with this now classic volume of 29 traditional tales from India, including some of the oldest recorded tales known."The Lion and the Crane," "How the Raja's Son Won the Princess Labam," "The Broken Pot," "The Tiger, the Brahman, and the Jackal," "The Talkative Tortoise," "The Ass in the Lion's Skin," "Why the Fish Laughed," "Sun, Moon, and Wind Go Out to Dinner," "The Prince and the Fakir," and all the other stories make delightful reading or listening for youngsters who are tired of the same familiar old favorites. John D. Batten's nine full-page plates and his 37 other drawings are reproduced from the original edition.
User reviews
I read this book 30 years ago while in elementary school. I have been haunted by memories of the stories all these years. I even went back to the elementary library years later, but alas they had purged their inventory. I was left with half forgotten memories of stories of childhood and no knowledge of the book title. I started searching some key words online recently and lo and behold stumbled on this book again. Such a long lost friend. I am about to sit down and open it again for the first time in 30 years. I only hope that the memories of a child and this books wonderous tales are still wonderous after 30 years of my passage into adulthood. I expect to still enjoy them though my perspective has changed and plan to share them with my own daughter who is just a little past the age where I myself found this wonderful collection of tales. Thank you forgotten books, for resurecting this book that was for 30 years truely forgotten by me, but now found again.
The Apotheoses of Lacspor
Not a riveting read, but stories for contemplation of cultural differences. For the student of Greek, and European mythology and fairy-tales, wishing to compare to traditional Indian instructive tales of morals for their children. The subtle differences are interesting. Most of the Indian H1Bs I know no longer read to their children. Two to four job households, working the American Dream, their children entertain themselves with cell phones, television, and computer games. A vanishing world.
If your looking for insight into the folklore of India then this is a great book. If you are looking for some light reading then forget this. The stories are tedious to read; the writing is very poor. But if that doesn't deter you then you will get some great stories and a better understanding of the Indian culture. I found I couldn't read more than two at a time though before I had to have a break! Definitely a bathroom kind of book.
