    The Red Fairy Book

    by Andrew Lang

    Book Description

    This book has been published to raise funds for The Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity. In buying this book you will be donating to this great charity that does so much good and enables families to stay together in times of crisis. And what better way to help children than to buy a book of fairy tales. Some not seen in print or heard for over a century. 33% of the Publisher's profit from the sale of this book will be donated to the GOSH Children's Charity. In this volume you will find the story of 'Sigurd', the 'Pied Piper,' 'Drakestail,' 'Little Golden Hood', 'The Six Sillies', 'Jack and the Beanstalk', 'Snowdrop', 'Rapunzel' and many others. IN gleaning of the fields of Fairy Land, Andrew Lang hoped that some of the tales in the Red Fairy Book may have the attraction of being as familiar as old friends. The tales have been translated, or adapted, from the originals originally written in old Norse, French, German, Romanian and many other European languages. What better way to bring a gleam into a child's eye than by reading them a fairy tale. And just when you think you've finished, don't be surprised if you feel a tug at your sleeve and a request for 'nuther fairy tale pleaseA" for this is where good always wins over evil, where the Prince always gets his Princess and where the common man is allowed to best Kings.
