Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Lilac Fairy Book, the twelfth in Andrew Lang's Coloured Fairy Book series, was originally published in 1910. This edition contains all 33 of the original stories and all 52 of the original illustrations. *** The collections were specifically intended for children, and consequently edited for that end. *** When Andrew began publishing these books there were almost no English fairy tale books in circulation. The series proved of great influence in children's literature, and inspired a host of imitators. The series also proved to be an inspiration to J.R. Tolken and his Middle-Earth collection of novels. *** This book contains these stories: The Shifty Lad, The False Prince and the True, The Jogi's Punishment, The Heart of a Monkey, The Fairy Nurse, A Lost Paradise, How Brave Walter Hunted Wolves, The King of the Waterfalls, A French Puck, The Three Crowns, The Story of a Very Bad Boy, The Brown Bear of Norway, Little Lasse, 'Moti', The Enchanted Deer, A Fish Story, The Wonderful Tune, The Rich Brother and the Poor Brother, The One-Handed Girl, The Bones of Djulung, The Sea King's Gift, The Raspberry Worm, The Stones of Plouhinec, The Castle of Kerglas, The Battle of the Birds, The Lady of the Fountain, The Four Gifts, The Groac'h of the Isle of Lok, The Escape of the Mouse, The Believing Husbands, The Hoodie-Crow, The Brownie of the Lake, and The Winning of Olwen. *** Check out the other Fairy Books from Flying Chipmunk Publishing
