Description


Many popular stories-- "Dick Whittington and his Cat," "The Story of Tom Thumb", "Jack and the Beanstalk"--join equally good but not so well-known stories. Like the tale of the tailor who slew two giants. Or the maid who had to travel to the well at the World's End. Or the old, poor soldier who cheats the foolish farmer. Or, finally, Tattercoats, the ragamuffin who became a princess. Greedy giants, handsome princes, wicked queeens, and a lot of magic all help to ensure that this collection of traditional fairy tales has something for everyone in the family.
