The Ordinary and the Fabulous: An Introduction to Myths, Legends and Fairy Tales. Second Edition.
Cook, Elizabeth
Written for teachers, for students who intend to be teachers or librarians, and for storytellers in general, this book interprets the familiar legends and tales (Greek, Scandinavian, German, and Celtic myths and legends; Arthurian romances; the Old Testament; and fairy tales) and describes how they can best be told to children. Parallel accounts of well-known stories are discussed in order to illuminate the problems of storytelling. A detailed annotated bibliography of books for both children and teachers provides a survey of collections of myths, organized according to place of origin; works on the interpretation of myths; and books on children's literature in general.
