Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:
Rediscover classics from the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, and many more in Andrew Lang’s fifth collection of fairy tales

Then the dragon flung himself on the youth and bound him fast with cords saying to his wife as he tied the last knot, 'Tomorrow when I go to church you must stay at home and kill him and cook him, and when I get back we will eat him together.'

Cats who fall in love and elope, a murderous raccoon, a talking snowman, and cannibalistic trolls are just a few of the magnificent characters introduced here. Discover a brand new world in which nothing is at it seems and magic rules the land; in which kings have power of life and death, people fall in love at first sight, and most animals can talk. Andrew Lang’s now legendary multi-colored fairy books are each filled with tales of the battle between good and evil, of enchanted forests and cozy cottages. New readers will be transported to a magical land, transfixed by the wonders they discover and enthralled by suspense; others will recognize some old favorites such as 'The Cunning Shoemaker,' ‘The Fir Tree,' 'The Little Hare,' ‘The Snow Man,' 'The Snow Queen,' and 'The Three Brothers.' With works translated from French, Danish, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Swedish, The Pink Fairy Book is here reproduced with stunning cover design and original illustrations and is sure to charm a brand new audience as much as it did when first published more than 100 years ago.
