Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Yellow Fairy Book is a wonderful collection of tales from all over the world. There are such familiar old favorites as the "Story of the Emperor's New Clothes," "The Tinder-box," "How to Tell a True Princess," and "The Nightingale." There are less familiar tales by Madame d'Aulnoy and from the collections of Andersen and Grimm. Many tales come from Hungary, Poland, and Russia, and there are German, French, and English stories, too. There are traditional tales of the American Indians, and three others come from Iceland.
All in all, this collection contains 48 stories, all narrated in the clear, lively prose for which Lang was famous. Not only are Lang's generally conceded to be the best English versions of standard stories, his collections are the richest and widest in range.

Synopsis:

American Indian, Russian, German, Icelandic, French, and other stories — 48 in all — among them "The Tinder-box," "The Nightingale," and "How to Tell a True Princess." 104 illustrations.

This is only one book in the installments, i dont know exactly how many theire are but they are amazing! i have the olive,blue,lavender,yellow, and pink fairy books that i couldnt put down when i was little, theire just enough pictures in it to entertain a little girl or boy but not to much to take away from the story, and each illustration looks very old fashion and original. These tails are from all around the world and will add magic and adventure to anyones life whether they be young or old. I cannot express my love for these books in any other way than to say...you should get these. I have many memories and still remember exactly where powells stored these books on their shelves and would go there right now if i didnt live 264 miles away.
