The kettle began it! Don't tell me what Mrs. Peerybingle said. I know better. Mrs. Peerybingle may leave it on record to the end of time that she couldn't say which of them began it; but, I say the kettle did. I ought to know, I hope! The kettle began it, full five minutes by the little waxy-faced Dutch clock in the corner, before the Cricket uttered a chirp. As if the clock hadn't finished striking, and the convulsive little Haymaker at the top of it, jerking away right and left with a scythe in front of a Moorish Palace, hadn't mowed down half an acre of imaginary grass before the Cricket joined in at all!

Just about everyone is familiar with folk and fairy tales. These forms of folklore are taught to children and repeatedly appear in one version or another in movies, literature, popular culture, and everyday life. But while folk and fairy tales are so pervasive, most people have only a vague understanding of them. Written by a leading expert, this reference is a valuable introduction for students and general readers. It examines folk and fairy tales as a folklore genre, discusses specific examples from around the world, explores the varied manifestations of folk and fairy tales throughout world culture, reviews critical and scholarly approaches, and cites works for further reading.
