Publisher Comments:

Scottish author and scholar Andrew Lang is perhaps best remembered today for compiling and editing the famous series Fairy Tales of Many Colors (all reprinted by Dover). In the present collection, he focused on stories about "the friends of children and of fairies — the beasts." Adapted and translated from tales by a wide range of authors, including Alexandre Dumas, Theophile Gautier, Pliny, and others, these charming stories include such delightful accounts as "The Buzzard and the Priest, " "The Adventures of Pyramus, " "Two Highland Dogs, " "The Ship of the Desert, " "The Otter who was reared by a Cat, " "The War Horse of Alexander, " "The Battle of the Mullets and the Dolphins, " and many more. Accompanied by 66 charming, old-fashioned illustrations, these time-honored tales will delight fairy tale fans and animal lovers of all ages.
