The Victorian Fairy Tale Book (The Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library)
Michael Patrick Hearn, ed.
From Robert Browning’s The Pied Piper of Hamelin and William Makepeace Thackeray’s The Rose and the Ring to Kenneth Grahme’s The Reluctant Dragon and J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, here are seventeen classic stories and poems from the golden age of the English fairy tale. Some of them amuse, some enchant, some satirize and criticize, but each one is an expression of the joy of living.
Accompanied by illustrations from the original editions of these works this collection will delight readers both young and old.
