The Old-Fashioned Fairy Book

The Old-Fashioned Fairy Book by Constance Cary Harrison

The Old-Fashioned Fairy Book by Constance Cary Harrison

And now, mamma, until your tea is ready, we know what you must do,” said the children, in a breath. “Tell us a story—a ‘real, truly’ fairy tale, about a giant and a dwarf, lots and lots of fairies, a prince and a beautiful princess with hair to her very feet, a champion with a magic sword, a dragon-chariot, a witch dressed in snake-skin—and, if you can, an ogre. Don’t punish anybody but the witch and the ogre; and please don’t have any moral, only let everybody ‘live in peace and die in a pot of grease,’ at the end of it.” “To be sure, we know most of mamma’s stories by heart,” said the sage elder of nine. “If she could only make up some new ones that aren’t in any of our books! Or else, mamma, tell us something you heard a little bit of, long, long ago, from your nurse, and then make up the rest. But whatever one you tell, we’ll be sure to like it anyhow.” The stories told, the mother fell to musing, and the result is the little book here presented to the judgment of children other than her own—a few new fairy tales, on the old, old pattern!

The Young Railroaders

The Young Railroaders by Francis Lovell Coombs

The Young Railroaders by Francis Lovell Coombs

While aimed at youths, this series of tales of the just-opening West makes a rollicking good story for adults, too. Three teen-age boys, trained as telegraphers, manage to get themselves in and out of a wide variety of harrowing circumstances. Using their knowledge of Morse code, the science of telegraphs, and the operation of railroads, the boys stir in native resourcefulness, quick-thinking, and when the occasion demands it, raw courage – to effect rescues, thwart thieves, and solve mysteries. If Tom Swift had lived in the nineteenth century, he could not have had more exciting escapades.

Tales of King Arthur and the Round Table

Tales of King Arthur and the Round Table by Andrew Lang

Tales of King Arthur and the Round Table by Andrew Lang

The tales of King Arthur and his Knights are of Celtic origin. The Celts were the people who occupied Britain at the time when the history of the country opens… It is believed that King Arthur lived in the sixth century, just after the Romans withdrew from Britain… the stories came to be handed down from father to son, in Brittany (whose people are of the same family as the Welsh) as well as in Wales and England… [story-tellers altered the stories to suit their times down through the centuries] …and so in their altered and historically inaccurate form they have reached us at the present day. …Sir Thomas Malory obtained the material for his “Morte d’Arthur,” which was written in 1470. This is the most famous of the early books of Arthurian legend, and it is from the “Morte d’Arthur” that most of the stories in this book are taken…. The language throughout has been modified with a view to making the legends more easy of study.
