Quarta di copertina
On the borders of the “Land o’ Dreams” and broad daylight, the real and the unreal are so strangely blended that children are puzzled to know where the boundary lies. It is from this land that Andrew Lang has selected the 14 illustrated stories in this volume. They are:
The Magic Ring
The White Duck
The Language Of Beasts
The Cat And The Mouse In Partnership
The Six Swans
The Story Of The Emperor's New Clothes
The Golden Crab
The Iron Stove
The Dragon And His Grandmother
The Donkey Cabbage
To Your Good Health!
These stories are taken from a place where good wishes come true: where the poor and the lonely are rich in castles and friends: and where sorrowful folk are happy.
Here you will hear the birds singing and children laughing, all day long. The trees are full of blossoms and fruit. The sky is always blue, the grass green and soft. Under the trees dwell the fairies, and against the blue sky you will sometimes see the sheen of angels’ wings as the flit by.
We invite you to curl up with this unique sliver of Fairy culture not seen in print for over a century; and immerse yourself in the tales and fables of yesteryear.
