Book Overview

It is almost impossible to envision what childhood would be like without the enchanting world of fairyland. Old witches in cloaks of gold, giants that turn into dwarfs, tears that become birds, monsters and magicians, ogres and fairies -- these are the companions who thrill boys and girls of all lands and times, as Andrew Lang's phenomenally successful collections of stories have proved. From the day they were first printed, the Lang fairy tale books...

I totally loved this collection! Lang really gathered a wide spectrum of folklore for this, even to the point of slight classic Victorian racism. But very much an awesome collection, and many of them did not follow the traditional fairy tale plot.

The Orange Fairy Book

Bought this with other books in the same series. I will eventually have the whole collection that I plan to display in my dining room. I hope that my grand-children will find the same joy and escape that I did as a child through this series of books.

Good To Read With A Cup Of Tea

I find this book to be one of the best fairy tale books I've ever read. The illustrations are simply beautiful! The different plots and twists for each tale are interesting.

Multicultural before it was a buzzword

Lang was one of the first editors to collect multicultural fairy tales into one volume for readers. The Orange Fairy Book offers tales from many cultures. Included tales are The Girl-Fish, How Isuro the Rabbit Tricked Gudu, How the Stalos Were Tricked, The Adventures of a Jackal, Story of the King Who Would See Paradise, and many others. I have enjoyed the colored fairy books for years. Don't miss the great illustrations either.
