Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

"The irony of Lang's life and work is that although he wrote for a profession-literary criticism; fiction; poems; books and articles on anthropology, mythology, history, and travel ... he is best recognized for the works he did not write." -- Anita Silvey, Children's Books and Their Creators Oh, that we all could become prosperous and famous for things we did not have to write! And still, the collecting of these tales is quite a deed. They're wonderful stuff -- many of them went on to become famous. And they're all wonderful reading! Many of them, in fact, are famously good. Also included: "The Tale of a Youth Who Set Out to Learn What Fear Was," "Rumpelstiltzkin," "Beauty and the Beast," "The Master-Maid," "Why the Sea Is Salt," "The Master Cat," "Felicia and the Pot of Pinks," "The White Cat," "The Water-Lily," "The Terrible Head," "The Story of Pretty Goldilocks," "The History of Whittington," "The Wonderful Sheep," "Little Thumb," "The Forty Thieves," "Hansel and Grettel," "Snow-White and Rose-Red," "The Goose-Girl," "Toads and Diamonds," "Prince Darling," "Blue Beard," "Trusty John," "The Brave Little Tailor," "A Voyage to Lilliput," "The Princess on the Glass Hill," "The Story of Prince Ahmed and the Fairy Paribanou," "The History of Jack the Giant-Killer," "The Black Bull of Norroway," and "The Red Etin."
