The theme of ISLM in 2021 is “Fairy Tales and Folk Tales Around the World.”
Check out some of these titles which collect legends, myths, tales, sagas and stories from around the globe:
Note: Some tales have been handed down from ancient times, many since before they were written down, while other are modern “mash-ups” or new spins on old stories. Some of the stories are integral to deeply held spiritual or religious beliefs. Some are, clearly, made up stories told for entertainment value of adventure or comedy. Others are somewhere in between. As with all great stories, we hope you can learn while you enjoy!
