About this title


Heroes and villains, monsters and spirits adorn the pages of Andrew Lang's third collection of fairy tales

There was once upon a time a castle in the middle of a thick wood where lived an old woman quite alone, for she was an enchantress. In the daytime she changed herself into a cat or a night-owl, but in the evening she became like an ordinary woman again. She could entice animals and birds to come to her, and then she would kill and cook them. If a pretty girl came within her boundary, the old enchantress changed her into a bird, and shut her up in a wicker cage. She had quite seven thousand of such cages in the castle with very rare birds in them.

Andrew Lang's famous legacy of fairy books is here continued with the publication of the third title. Purchased and read all over the world, Lang’s books proved tremendously popular when first published and the spellbinding stories resonate to this day. This beautiful volume features renditions of old favorites such as "The Story of the Three Bears," "The Three Little Pigs," "The Magic Swan," and "The Story of the Fisherman and His Wife" along with some perhaps less well-known titles such as "The Enchanted Snake" and "Jack my Hedgehog."

About the Author:

Andrew Lang (1844–1912) was a novelist, journalist, poet, and literary critic best known for his collections of fairy tales known as The Fairy Books.
