'Katharine M. Briggs has done a wonderful job in bringing all these old stories together. She has had access to all the great collections and has done a most painstaking job classifying them. [This book] will prove fascinating to anyone who cares about how they vary in different parts of the country.' - Daily Telegraph
`This is an English Night's Entertainment of a work, a British Pentamerone in which story after story can be savoured simply for the pleasure of a good tale well told. And any native of this land, whether he hails from Aberdeen or Abbots Langley, may take these volumes in his hands and say to himself that here is a part of his heritage.' - New Society
