Amazon.com description: Product Description:

The first in a series of 12 fairy tale anthologies beloved of children in the last century, each a veritable treasure trove of stories for children and adults alike, spellbinding and special

Once upon a time there lived a king who was deeply in love with a princess, but she could not marry anyone, because she was under an enchantment. So the King set out to seek a fairy, and asked what he could do to win the Princess's love . . .

This very special anthology includes wonderful renditions of the old favorites such as Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel, as well as some intriguing fairy tales that modern audiences have yet to discover such as Why the Sea is Salt, Prince Hyacinth, and The Dear Little Princess. Andrew Lang collected stories from communities and traditions all over the world for his fairy books: from the Arabian Nights, China, and the Brothers Grimm. Many of the tales were translated into English for the first time for these anthologies, from languages as far afield as Russian, Norse, and Japanese. The book is republished here with a stunning blue jacket, accompanied throughout by the original illustrations.
