Overview

Andrew Lang's Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Books constitute a twelve-book series of fairy tale collections. Although Andrew Lang did not collect the stories himself from the oral tradition, the extent of his sources, who had collected them originally (with the notable exception of Madame d'Aulnoy), made them an immensely influential collection, especially as he used foreign-language sources, giving many of these tales their first appearance in English. As acknowledged in the prefaces, although Lang himself made most of the selections, his wife and other translators did a large portion of the translating and telling of the actual stories.

This ebook edition of the Yellow Fairy Book contains all of the beautiful H. J. Ford illustrations.

This was a great book if you are into fairy tales and things, some of the other books repeat the same stories, but this was a good book and i recommend it for all ages

I love collections of stories like this because they are where all the ideas for children originally come from. They are also where the ideas for new books and movies originally come from, and for that I am grateful to read the originals.
