The Brown Fairy Book
by Andrew Lang

"The Brown Fairy Book", the ninth in Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Book series, was originally published in 1904. This edition contains all 32 of the original stories and all 50 of the original black-and-white illustrations. *** The collections were specifically intended for children, and consequently edited for that end. *** When Andrew began publishing these books there were almost no English fairy tale books in circulation. The series proved of great influence in children's literature, and inspired a host of imitators. The series also proved to be an inspiration to J.R. Tolken and his Middle-Earth collection of novels. *** This book contains these stories: What the Rose did to the Cypress, Ball-Carrier and the Bad One; How Ball-Carrier finished his Task; The Bunyip; Father Grumbler; The Story of the Yara; The Cunning Hare; The Turtle and his Bride; How Geirald the Coward was Punished; Hábogi; How the Little Brother set Free his Big Brothers; The Sacred Milk of Koumongoé; The Wicked Wolverine; The Husband of the Rat's Daughter; The Mermaid and the Boy; Pivi and Kabo; The Elf Maiden; How Some Wild Animals became Tame Ones; Fortune and the Wood-Cutter; The Enchanted Head; The Sister of the Sun; The Prince and the Three Fates; The Fox and the Lapp; Kisa the Cat; The Lion and the Cat; Which was the Foolishest?; Asmund and Signy; Rübezahl; Story of the King who would be Stronger then Fate; Story of Wali Dâd the Simple-hearted, Tale of a Tortoise and of a Mischievous Monkey; and The Knights of the Fish. *** Check out the other Fairy Books from Flying Chipmunk Publishing!
