Overview

The Crimson Fairy Book
by Andrew Lang

"The Crimson Fairy Book", the eighth in Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Book series, was originally published in 1903. This edition contains all 36 of the original stories and all 53 of the original black-and-white illustrations. *** The collections were specifically intended for children, and consequently edited for that end. *** When Andrew began publishing these books there were almost no English fairy tale books in circulation. The series proved of great influence in children's literature, and inspired a host of imitators. The series also proved to be an inspiration to J.R. Tolken and his Middle-Earth collection of novels. *** This book contains these stories: Lovely Ilonka; Lucky Luck; The Hairy Man; To your Good Health!; The Story of the Seven Simons; The Language of Beasts; The Boy who could keep a Secret; The Prince and the Dragon; Little Wildrose; Tiidu the Piper; Paperarello; The Gifts of the Magician; The Strong Prince; The Treasure Seeker; The Cottager and his Cat; The Prince who would seek Immortality; The Stone-cutter; The Gold-bearded Man; Tritill, Litill, and the Birds; The Three Robes; The Six Hungry Beasts; How the Beggar Boy turned into Count Piro; The Rogue and the Herdsman; Eisenkopf; The Death of Abu Nowas and of his Wife; Motikatika; Niels and the Giants; Shepherd Paul; How the wicked Tanuki was punished; The Crab and the Monkey; The Horse Gullfaxi and the Sword Gunnfoder; The Story of the Sham Prince, or the Ambitious Tailor; The Colony of Cats; How to find out a True Friend; Clever Maria; and The Magic Kettle. *** Check out the other Fairy Books from Flying Chipmunk Publishing!

Good stuff. One of the better folklore books I've read.

I've read these 'color' fairy tale books out of order as a child, but that doesn't matter. In the end, the one who gains from it all is the reader since Andrew Lang had to do all of the hard work of collecting them into a readable and remarkable set of tales. Great learning for great children.
