Editorial Reviews

Alun Williams
This is possibly my favourite from the Andrew Lang Fairy Books. At least it contains two of my favourite stories: "The Girl who Pretended to be a Boy" and "The History of Dwarf Long Nose". It is very surprising that the first of these should have made it into a book for children at all back in 1910 or so, but you'll have to read the story to find out why. Many of the stories feature female heroines who are as capable of battling dragons and other monsters as any handsome prince.

    A nice summary of folklore

    As with Andrew Lang's other collections of lore, this is a fine example for children the world round. It incorporates tales from all over and each with a direct or subtle moral.
