Take your thumb out of your mouth! (she fishes a handkerchief out of the prin cess' pinafore pocket.) And let three drops fall on your handkerchief at once!

The Victorian fascination with fairyland is reflected in the literature of the period, which includes some of the most imaginative fairy tales ever written. They offer the shortest path to the age's dreams, desires, and wishes. Authors central to the nineteenth-century canon such as Thackeray, Oscar Wilde, Ford Madox Ford, and Rudyard Kipling wrote fairy tales, and authors primarily famous for their work in the genre include George MacDonald, Juliana Ewing, Mary De Morgan, and Andrew Lang. This anthology brings together fourteen of the best stories, by these and other outstanding practitioners, to show the vibrancy and variety of the form and its ability to reflect our deepest concerns. The stories in this selection range from pure whimsy and romance to witty satire and darker, uncanny mystery. Paradox proves central to a form offered equally to children and adults. Fairyland is a dynamic and beguiling place, one that permits the most striking explorations of gender, suffering, love, family, and the travails of identity. Michael Newton's introduction and notes explore the literary marketplace in which these tales appeared, as well as the role they played in contemporary debates on scepticism and belief. The book also includes a selection of original illustrations by some of the masters of the field such as Richard Doyle, Arthur Hughes, and Walter Crane.
Nine charming, sensitive stories: "The Happy Prince," "The Selfish Giant," "The Star-Child," "The Nightingale and the Rose," "The Birthday of the Infanta," "The Remarkable Rocket," "The Devoted Friend," more.
Excerpt from Our Next Door Neighbour: A Story for Children His is a story the fairies told me. Just as they told it to me do I tell it to you - word for word. It is very nice to be a favourite of the fairies, and to have stories told you. In the first place, it is pleasant to hear the stories; and in the second place, if people find fault with them, say they are too long or too short, too improbable or very dull.

Excerpt from A Book of Fairy Tales It was otherwise With Grimm; he did in Germany on a more extended scale what Perrault did in France, and Grimm's folk-tales won their way to children's hearts at once, and have established therein an empire, which cannot be shaken. Grimm's success was due to the same cause as that of Perrault. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
