Once upon a time there lived a king who was deeply in love with a princess, but she could not marry anyone, because she was under an enchantment. So the King set out to seek a fairy, and asked what he could do to win the Princess's love . .

This very special anthology includes wonderful renditions of the old favorites such as Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel, as well as some intriguing fairy tales that modern audiences have yet to discover such as Why the Sea is Salt, Prince Hyacinth, and The Dear Little Princess.

The book is republished here with a stunning blue jacket, accompanied throughout by the original illustrations.

Andrew Lang's Fairy Books are a series of 25 collections of true and fictional stories for children published between 1889 and 1913 . The best known books of the series are the 12 collections of fairy tales known as Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's Fairy Books of Many Colors . In all, the volumes feature 798 stories, besides the 153 poems in The Blue Poetry Book .

He made most of the selections, while his wife and other translators did a large portion of the translating and retelling of the actual stories, as acknowledged in the prefaces.
