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: The Green Fairy Book. 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 volume features renditions of old favourites 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'. Dip into this beautiful collection and disappear into imaginary worlds and magnificent kingdoms, accompany princesses on their quests for princes, goblins in their search for treasure and talking animals just trying to make their way in life. Republished with a beautiful green jacket, and illustrated throughout with original drawings,

'A cat had made acquaintance with a mouse, and had spoken so much of the great love and friendship she felt for her, that at last the Mouse consented to live in the same house with her, and to go shares in the housekeeping. 'But we must provide for the winter or else we shall suffer hunger,' said the Cat. 'You, little Mouse, cannot venture everywhere in case you run at last into a trap.' Hesperus is proud to present the fourth book in its beautiful children's 'Fairy Book' series. Following on from the Blue and Red books, The Yellow Fairy Book makes another stunning addition to the set as it publishes here alongside The Green Fairy Book. First published in 1894, this extensive fairy tale anthology was edited by Andrew Lang, a pioneering author and critic. By bringing together folk tales from all over the world and having them translated into English, many for the first time, he was able to create rich and varied collections of stories, opening readers' eyes to a whole world of magical possibility overseas. Adults and children alike will enjoy the old favourites in this collection such as The Emperor's New Clothes along with the unsung gems such as The Snow-Daughter and The Fire-Son and In the Land of Souls. The stories come from as far afield as Iceland and Greece and from such differing sources as Native American oral tradition and the Brothers Grimm. Accompanied throughout by the original illustrations and with a stunning cover design, The Yellow Fairy Book is certainly a book to treasure.
