Fairy Book - The Best Popular Stories Selected and Rendered Anew

Author: Dinah Maria Mulock Craik Format: eBook Release Date: 31/10/2017

This is meant to be the best collection attainable of that delight of all children, and of many grown people who retain the child-heart still-the old-fashioned, time-honoured classic Fairy-tale. It has been compiled from all sources-far-off and familiar; when familiar, the stories have been traced with care to their original form, which, if foreign, has been retranslated, condensed, and in any other needful way made suitable for modern British children. Perrault, Madame d'Aulnois, and Grimm have thus been laid under contribution.

Then the vowels-the three broad rich a's-which no one can pronounce with nimini-pimini closed lips-how thoroughly they answered to her character!-a character in the which was nothing small, mean, cramped, or crooked."e;
