The Grey Fairy Book
by Andrew Lang

"The Grey Fairy Book", the sixth in the series, was originally published in 1900. This edition contains all thirty-five of the original stories and all fifty-eight 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: Donkey Skin; The Goblin Pony; An Impossible Enchantment; The Story of Dschemil and Dachemila; Janni and the Draken; The Partnership of the Thief and the Liar; Fortunatus and his Purse; The Goat-faced Girl; What came of picking Flowers; The Story of Bensurdatu; The Magician's Horse; The Little Gray Man; Herr Lazarus and the Draken; The Story of the Queen of the Flowery Isles; Udea and her Seven Brothers; The White Wolf; Mohammed with the Magic Finger; Bobino; The Dog and the Sparrow; The Story of the Three Sons of Hali; The Story of the Fair Circassians; The Jackal and the Spring The Bear; The Sunchild The Daughter of Buk Ettemsuch; Laughing Eye and Weeping Eye, or the Limping Fox; The Unlooked for Prince; The Simpleton; The Street Musicians; The Twin Brothers; Cannetella; The Ogre; A Fairy's Blunder; Long, Broad, and Quickeye; and Prunella.

    One of my favorites

    This book draws from the fairy tales and wives tales from all over Europe and other parts of the world, and I could't get enough of them when I was a kid. Along with other books, I gave my old copy of this to my boy after reading it to him, and he asks the same questions I once asked my grandma, like, 'How can he do that?', 'How can that happen?' and 'Can animals really talk?' This book inspires kids to read so that they can learn to answer questions and know what is out there so they'll know what to do when they come upon it.

    Haha! Did you think that there would be a description of my friends and I in this review? I hope not. Because I do not want you to be disapointed. Oh, well. I guess you probably were expecting a description, were you not? I suppose you must be disapointed. It is really too bad.*sighs* Well, goodbye.
