Extending the coverage in the 1982 edition through the end of the century, the new index allows access to folktales for children by subject, tale title, geographic or ethnic origin, or tale motif. For each tale, a plot description is provided, and the collection that contains it is cited. The arranged is the Stith-Thompson motif-index scheme, making it easy to compare variants of a tale by placing them close together in the index. MacDonald and Sturm intend the 210 folktale collections and 790 picture books to include all such volumes included in Children's Catalog 1983- 1999 and all those reviewed in the ALA's journal Booklist during those years. Collections of original tales, tall tales, epics, and classical mythology are not included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
