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.
