Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This second volume of unique fairy tales includes stories originally published in 1923. Each reflects the warmth of a midwestern childhood, a zest for life, and a love of the American language that has never been equaled.

About the Author

CARL SANDBURG (1878-1967) was twice awarded the Pulitzer Prize, first in 1940 for his biography of Abraham Lincoln and again in 1951 for Complete Poems. Before becoming known as a poet, he worked as a milkman, an ice harvester, a dishwasher, a salesman, a fireman, and a journalist. Among his classics are the Rootabaga Stories, which he wrote for his young daughters at the beginning of his long and distinguished literary career.
