Book summary

In this volume will be found not only many of the familiar ingredients of folklore, but many surprising Slavic twists as well. Greed and gullibility are justly punished; quick wits and ingenuity triumph over brutish strength every time; but these animals, the fox and the wild boar, the bear, the faithful dog, even a surprising cat who announces, "I am Pan Kotsky! I am the most frightful animal in the woods. I tear to pieces whomever I please!" -- are mirrors of human foibles and failings and reflect a humorous commentary on life in general. [via]
