Description

A collection of children's fairy tales -- including "The Ugly Duckling" by Hans Christian Andersen -- that captures storytelling traditions from all over the world.

Andrew Lang's Fairy Books of Many Colors would not be complete without this entry, which includes fairy tales from Rhodesia, Uganda, Finland, Scotland, Scandinavia, France, Spain, and from the folklore of the Punjabis, Jutlanders, and Native Americans. As with the other volumes in this series, The Orange Fairy Book contains the best English translations of the stories within and is rich and wide-ranging in scope.

Along with the classic "The Ugly Duckling" by Hans Christian Andersen and Madam d'Aulnoy's "The White Doe," this collection features stories such as "The Fox and the Wolf," "The Two Caskets," "The Three Treasures of the Giants," "The Girl-Fish," "The Clever Cat," "Adventures of an Indian Brave," and others.

"The old favorite series on which most of us were brought up -- and our parents before us... Andrew Lang and his associates managed to break the stranglehold of the pious sentimentality handed out to children by collecting -- from all over the world -- fairy tales of all people, and bringing out the volumes we all know and love." -- Kirkus Reviews
