Overview

The motif of this collection of children's stories is to be found in the author's well-known work among the Bands of Mercy; the form which the stories take is well explained in the preface to the volume in the following words: "To listen to the voices of the fairies and elves is more fascinating to a child than to listen to the voice of a teacher, although both tell the same lesson." In relating some of the most entertaining fairy stories that we know anything about the lesson is never missed, and yet its presence is never obtrusive. Its meaning is often as important to elders as it is to children. The story of "King Kindness and the Witch" contains the whole creed which for several years the Audubon Society has attempted with more or less success to impress upon old and young alike.
