This book has been especially re-published to raise funds for the BBC's Children in Need Appeal. The stories herein were originally published over a century ago. Some will be familiar fare and others less familiar, but all are entertaining and appealing nonetheless.

The 19 illustrated stories in this volume are:

The Sleeping Beauty In The Wood

Prince Hyacinth And The Dear Little Princess

Cinderella Or The Little Glass Slipper

East Of The Sun And West Of The Moon


The Tale Of A Youth Who Set Out To Learn What Fear Was

Lovely Ilonka

Beauty And The Beast

Lucky Luck

Why The Sea Is Salt

The Master Cat Or Puss In Boots

The Six Swans

The Prince And The Dragon

The Dragon Of The North

Little Wildrose

The Nixy

The Glass Mountain


The White Duck

The words 'Fairy Tales' must be taken to include tales in which something 'fairy', something extraordinary occurs -- fairies, giants, dwarfs, speaking animals. One cannot imagine a child saying, 'Tell me a folk-tale', or 'Another nursery tale, please, grandma'. It must also be taken to cover tales in which something magical happens. Mostly it is the comical stupidity of some of the actors, as is so common in moral tales.
In buying this book you will be giving in more than one way. Once to the Children in Need appeal and again, to yourself, as you read and enjoy stories not read for many a year. But should you perchance happen to read these stories to your children, nieces and nephews or grand-children, you will be giving yet again. 50% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to the appeal.

So take some time out and travel back to a period before television, or even radio for that matter, when families would gather around a crackling and spitting hearth and granddad or grandma or an uncle or aunt would delight and captivate their audience with stories passed on to them from their mothers, fathers and grandparents.
