Overview

Proofed and corrected from the original edition for enjoyable reading. (Worth every penny spent!)

***

There can be no doubt that an illustrated edition of fairy tale stories are held in very high estimation by our young people, more so, perhaps, than any other kind of juvenile literature.

The sorrows of poor, ill-used ' Cinderella,' the trials and troubles of 'The Ugly Duckling,' the long rest of the 'Sleeping Beauty,' the wondrous adventures of'Sindbad,' or the queer vagaries of the 'Beauty and the Beast'Dwarf,' afford an endless fund of healthy and hearty amusement. They will read each of these, and we do not know how many more into the bargain, over and over again, without a sign of impatience or weariness, even till they can repeat them by heart to an admiring circle in the nursery.

Speaking of fairy tales, as a class, we can most conscientiously say that they are well worthy the affectionate favor in which they are regarded, and are instruments not only of amusement, but of instruction, that no parent need fear to employ.
With some very rare exceptions, their tone is pure and refined, and in every respect suited to the freshness and innocence of the budding imagination: they transport it at once to a new world, where it is greeted with all that beauty and brightness and happiness wherein it so delights, and is fed with the daintiest fare. Nor is it surprising that children like for awhile to quit the region of tempting jam-cupboards, and weak-minded heroes and heroines who cannot resist its seductions, and to take flight to the territory of those busy, agreeable little people, the fairies, concerning whose position on the map geography is silent;though we shrewdly suspect that, if applied to, "Favorite Fairy Tales" could inform us; for the intimate and acute knowledge it displays in the habits and customs which could very well be a gained only by a long sojourn among the stories for a close and careful study of national character and institutions.
