This is a collection of Croatian fairy takes from the 19th century, I think. My Croatian neighbor (who proofread the Croatian spellings for me) says that this author and the illustrator are both very well known in Croatia and she sounded pretty nostalgic. I like the book because it gives a very clear picture of what the country was like at the time these stories were written. They are quite different from the American and British fairy tales I remember from 70 years ago. I thought the illustrations were a bit scary for little children, though.

As usual, HTML and EPUB versions are available upon request.
