Andrew Lang began gathering fairy tales with the aim of conserving the old stories that have pleased so many generations. This bold and eclectic anthology contains wonderful renditions of old favorites such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel, as well as some little known stories like The Death of Koschei the Deathless and The Nettle Spinner. Be transported to a land full of marvels and magic, a world of enchanted forests and isolated castles, of giants, fairies, and trolls; of treasure, music, and promise. Andrew Langs fairy books helped to lay the foundation for our continuing fascination with fairy tales as entertainment and cultural objects. The book is republished here with a stunning red jacket, accompanied throughout by the original illustrations.
