_THE BLUE BIRD_


Once upon a time there lived a King who was immensely rich. He had broad
lands, and sacks overflowing with gold and silver; but he did not care a
bit for all his riches, because the Queen, his wife, was dead. He shut
himself up in a little room and knocked his head against the walls for
grief, until his courtiers were really afraid that he would hurt
himself. So they hung feather-beds between the tapestry and the walls,
and then he could go on knocking his head as long as it was any
consolation to him without coming to much harm. All his subjects came to
see him, and said whatever they thought would comfort him: some were
grave, even gloomy with him; and some agreeable, even gay; but not one
could make the least impression upon him. Indeed, he hardly seemed to
hear what they said. At last came a lady who was wrapped in a black
mantle, and seemed to be in the deepest grief. She wept and sobbed until
even the King's attention was attracted; and when she said that, far
from coming to try and diminish his grief, she, who had just lost a good
husband, was come to add her tears to his, since she knew what he must
be feeling, the King redoubled his lamentations.

    Get spell check.

    I like the stories, they are different from most of the more common fairy tales we usually read. The big problem is the terrible spelling. At times I feel as if I'm writing the stories, trying to guess what some of the words are supposed to be.

    An almost forgotten classic

    Collected fairy tales from all over Europe are in this book such as The Enchanted Storks, The Wolf and the Fox, The Golden Mermaid, The Fisherman and his Wife, and more. A book that deserves to be brought back into the mainstream of children's reading.
