Treasure Chest Thursday ~ Tanglewood Tales

This wonderful book of tall tales belonged to my father. I never did get around to reading it. I'm going to have to remedy that.

When I was a youngster visiting grandma I gathered all the books that belonged to dad and took them home. There is someone on Ebay selling a copy of this book for $34.95.

This particular book was published in 1930 by The Saalfield Publishing Co. It has 13 wonderful illustrations by Fern Bisel Peat, one of which can be seen below.

There are six different stories in this book.

  • The Minotaur
  • The Pygmies
  • The Dragon's Teeth
  • Circe's Palace
  • The Pomegranate Seeds
  • The Golden Fleece

This sure would be fun to read to the grandkids.
