This book is a collection of 55 folktales that feature supernatural abilities. These tales represent powers - from invisibility to shape-shifting - which people have dreamed of, conjured up, and strived for through the ages. Many of the powers are present in popular culture, making the superheroes who wield them the direct descendants of characters such as the princess who could see through walls or the invulnerable Isfandiyar.
