The Key of Gold
23 Czech Folk Tales
by Josef Baudis
This is a short collection of folk tales translated from Czech sources. Aside from the character's names and a mention of a water gnome called a 'Waternick', these stories could be from just about anywhere in Europe, and several (such as 'Three at One Blow') will be familiar to readers of Lang's 'colored' fairy books. That said, this book is pleasant reading and a nice collection.
