Reviews

"A comprehensive anthology. . . . Also of note are artist Frank's gorgeous illustrations."--Library Journal
"It is not often that a new book comes along that is both a breakthrough in scholarly terms and also a magnificent work of art. Jack Zipes's The Sorcerer's Apprentice, illustrated by Natalie Frank, is both."--Maria Tatar, Breezes from Wonderland
"Jack Zipes has always been a kind of sorcerer himself, skilled in discovering, transforming, translating, and understanding the old tales of magic that appear in different but similar forms all over the world. This is a wonderful collection."--Alison Lurie, author of Don't Tell the Grown-Ups
"An eclectic collection . . . spanning millennia and continents."--Cameron Woodhead, Sydney Morning Herald
"A selection of high-quality tales. . . . This book offers a convincing explanation for the immortality of tales featuring the sorcerer's apprentice."--Yelena Francis, Journal of Folklore Research
