Europeans began to write down the folk and fairy tales of their various countries only when Johan Gutenberg invented his printing press in 1450. Some of the better-known collectors of folktales are Joseph Jacobs of England, the Grimm brothers of Germany and the Norwegians, Peter Asbjornsen and Moe Jorgen. Here you will meet, among other fascinating characters, the adventurer, Conall Yellowclaw, clever Jack O’Lantern who tricked even the devil and the foolish MacAndrew brothers who frittered away their fortune and lost even the roof over their heads.
