      i have the new catalog from Daedalus Books, who are having their Big Sale -
      their catalog always makes the books that didn't sell sound far more
      interesting than the books that did.

      .On the web, http://www.salebooks.com or http:www.daedalusbooks.com.

      I was interested by this notice:

      THE PATIENT STONE: A Persian Love Story.

      Theatrical storyteller Margaret Wolfson re-tells an ancient Persian myth for
      readers 8 to 11, using a traditional Eastern narrative form rich with
      symbolism. A mysterious voice at the village well tells the kind and poetic Fatima
      that she will soon die. Seeking help, Fatima discovers a beautiful walled garden
      and a sleeping prince, who can only be awakened through the utmost patience
      and dedication. Just before her mission is done, Fatima is tricked by a robber
      girl, who takes Fatima's place beside the prince. It is the prince who finds
      the Patient Stone, and the truth that sets Fatima free. Juan Caneba Clavero's
      provides luxuriously detailed illustrations and borders.

      Now, I don't know this story, but isn't this the same motif as the Grimm
      Brothers' THE GOOSE GIRL?

      Just asking.
