Publisher Comments:

This book has been especially re-published to raise funds for The Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.By buying this book you will be donating to this great charity that does so much good for ill children and which also enables families to stay together in times of crisis. And what better way to help children than to buy a book of fairy tales. Some have not been seen in print or heard for over a century. 33% of the Publisher's profit from the sale of this book will be donated to the GOSH Children's Charity.In this volume you will find the story of Sigurd', 'the Pied Piper, ' Drakestail, ' Little Golden Hood', The Six Sillies', 'Jack and the Beanstalk', 'Snowdrop', 'Rapunzel' and many more.In gleaning of the fields of Fairy Land, Andrew Lang hoped that some of the tales in the Red Fairy Book may have the attraction of being as familiar as old friends. Some of these tales will not have been read aloud for over a century. We hope these become new friends and in time, old friends'. The tales have been translated, or adapted, from stories originally written in old Norse, French, German, Romanian and many other European languages. What better way to bring a gleam into a child's eye than by reading them a fairy tale from a far-away land. And just when you think you've finished, don't be surprised if you feel a tug at your sleeve and a request for 'nuther fairy tale please for this is where good always wins over evil, where the Prince always gets his Princess and where the common man is allowed to best Kings.YESTERDAYS BOOKS FOR TODAYS CHARITIES.
