    These wonderful collections of stories, beautifully translated from Danish by Stephen Badman, should be in every school library, and English classroom throughout the land. Stephen Badman and fellow storyteller John Herbert have sensitively reworked each tale so that each appears fresh and captures the reader, young and old, transporting the reader back to a time where a common European cultural heritage seems to meet in this literature collected from the oral tradition and fortunately now translated for a 21st century audience to enjoy. A time of villages and villagers, robbers and bandits, rich and poor, - universal archetypes and an abundance of excitement and danger (and some unhappy endings!) Stephen Badman's career as a storyteller pays off in spades as the translations also work brilliantly read aloud, by teacher and student, bringing this heritage magically to life. Parallels and similarities with the folk tales of Wales, England and Scotland can be drawn, and each collection... More > has the potential to be dramatised for students of Drama and English. Oracy, Reading and Writing objectives can all be fulfilled using this collection as a resource. This collection represents an exciting opportunity for teachers, especially at Key Stages 2 and 3 to develop a new approach to reading folk tales with their students extending their understanding of the genre in a European context, and represents fantastic value at the price.
