Quiller-Couch here gives us these four fairy tales that have been perennial favorites for centuries. The first three fairy tales a...re 'The Sleeping Beauty,' 'Blue Beard,' and 'Cinderella,' all three of which were popularized in France by Charles Perrault in 1697 in his Tales of Mother Goose. The last tale in the compilation is 'Beauty and the Beast,' this version attributed to Gabrielle de Villeneuve, who published it in 1740 and 1756. Quiller-Couch had this to say regarding his translation of these tales: 'I began by translating Perrault's tales, very nearly word for word....the translations, when finished, did not satisfy me, and so I turned back to the beginning and have rewritten the stories in my own way, which (as you may say with the Irish butler) may not be the best claret, but tis the best we ve got.'...' read more

Large print edition, with easy-to-read text, of Craik's classic short stories.
Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish author and poet, most famous for his fairy tales. Most English (as well as German... and French) sources use the name "Hans Christian Andersen", but in Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia he is usually referred to as merely "H. C. Andersen. " During Andersen's lifetime he was feted by royalty and acclaimed as having brought joy to children across Europe. His fairy tales have been translated into over 150 languages and continue to be published in "millions of copies all over the world". In 1829, Andersen enjoyed a considerable success with a short story entitled A Journey on Foot from Holmen's Canal to the East Point of Amager. During the same season, he published both a farce and a collection of poems. Among his best-known stories are: The Emperor's New Clothes (1837), The Snow Queen (1844), The Ugly Duckling (1844) and The Little Mermaid (1848). read more

Originally collected in Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories in 1902, The Cat that Walked by Himself is one of the best-loved cat tal...es ever written. It is a story of the beginning of domesticated life: Man meets Woman and they move into a cave and set up the first household. Dog, Horse, and Cow come out of the Wild Woods and become tame. But Cat refuses, “I am not a friend and I am not a servant. I am the Cat who walks by himself and all places are alike to me.” Woman makes a bargain with Cat to allow him to come into the cave and sit by the fire and drink milk. But when night comes, he is once again the Cat that walks by himself. The contrast between the cozy, domestic world and the cold, dark outdoors where the cat still has his freedom make this a compelling tale and a fun take on the independent feline character. This beautiful book is illustrated with the original pen-and-ink drawings by Kipling, including the iconic picture of the cat “walking by his wild lone through the Wet Wild Woods and waving his wild tail”.This edition also offers two other favorite children’s stories told by Kipling, “How the Camel Got His Hump,” ‘”The Elephant’s Child,” and “How the Rhinocerous Got His Skin.” This charming book is the perfect gift for children, cat lovers, and Kipling fans alike. read more
