An excerpt from the beginning of the first story:

The ROAD to FAIRYLAND


Eleanor and Eleanor's Mother and the Pretty -Young - Lady - with - Jingling Earrings and Eleanor's Aunt Kate, who knew all about everything and could explain even to Father and Mother, had spent the day at the Exposition.

Now the buildings were closing for the evening and soft, bright blue twilight, spangled with the first stars and glimmering with the early moon, filled the quiet courts and flowery avenues and made Eleanor say, "Oh! Isn't it beautiful!" and dance for joy until her curls bobbed.

The great tower and the smaller towers were glowing red like huge lanterns. Just enough lights had appeared to make shimmers and gleams in the sheets of water that fell from the fountains. The quiet pools had become mirrors; Eleanor looked into them and saw the buildings all turned magically upside down.

It was just as if the Evening Fairy had waved her wand and turned the world into Fairyland.

"Is this why we stayed here for the evening," asked Eleanor, "to see how lovely it is now?"

"Not tired, dear?"

"No, Mother—not very. I just wanted to know why we stayed; because Aunt Kate said she thinks there will be no fireworks tonight."

Eleanor had once been allowed to wait for the fireworks and had found them most exciting.

"We're going to do the Fine Arts, honey. The Palace of Fine Arts is open tonight and—you're not tired, dear?" For Eleanor had sighed a little sigh without meaning to.

She was not tired—not tired enough to admit it, at least. But "doing the Fine Arts" did not seem very attractive to her. She had tried it before, by day, and it meant rooms and rooms and rooms of pictures; very pretty ones to be sure, but too many for a little girl to see all at once without growing bewildered. And it meant Aunt Kate's stopping before almost every one—or so it seemed to Eleanor—and saying queer long words, like Divisionist, Futurista, Boccionist, Munich School, while the Pretty-Young-Lady-with-Jingling-Earrings exclaimed, "I know I shall never remember a word of it!" and Dear Mother said, "Wonderful! It is so interesting to know these things, Kate!"
