Friday’s Library Snapshot … Pacala and Tandala and other Romanian Folk tales by Jean Ure.

January 11, 2013

Pacala and Tandala are two typical folk-tale rogues, they delight children and adults with their subtle mix of naughty and nice.  However, they are not alone; there are wise old men, capable girls and of course a giant or two.  Also, the author Jean Ure provides a some general information about Romanian culture and the folk-tale tradition.

However as ever it is the illustrator I am drawn to and recognised Charles Mozley (1914-1991), from a recent exhibition of Book Jackets we had in the Library.
