Including such classic tales as “The Spotted Hatchling” and “How the Maids Saved the Bishop,” The Collected Tales of Our Glorious Originators is a must-have for nostalgics and lovers of the fairytale genre alike. Author Herazade Engley, known for her storybook compilations such as The Lonely Witch and her Golden Ship and Whispers from the Dream Bubbles, outdoes herself in this anthology of all the beloved stories your lusus read to you when you were just a wiggler.
