Fantastic creatures pop up in the most unexpected places in this delightful collection of six fairy tales. In the title story, `The Glass Mountain`, a wicked sorceress takes the shape of a hawk guarding the castle grounds; while in `Prince Surprise` a king encounters a very demanding ogre in the waters of a well. A young man`s horse in `Bogdynek` is really a miracle-working fairy, and in `The Old Man`s Son,` an ant with a human voice gives good advice to a young man lost in the woods. `The Prince and the Foundling` and `Jan the Prince` complete this treasury of time-honored tales from Eastern Europe.
Reprinted here in large, easy-to-read type and enhanced with six illustrations by Marty Noble, `The Glass Mountain` and Other Polish Fairy Tales` will delight readers and listeners of all ages.
