Generations of readers have thrilled to traditional tales recounted by folklorist Andrew Lang. Starting with his 1889 publication of The Blue Fairy Book and continuing through a rainbow-hued spectrum of other titles, Lang’s stories continue to enchant audiences of all ages. This captivating anthology features 27 of his most treasured retellings of fairy tales.
Featured fables include “Cinderella,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Rapunzel,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” and other classics. Many of these fantasies were popularized by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, Charles Perrault, and other long-ago storytellers. The fairy tales are enhanced by artist H. J. Ford’s imaginative black-and-white illustrations from the original editions.
