KIRKUS REVIEW

Welcome news- this reissue of the old favorite series on which most of us were brought up- and our parents before us. Two generations ago, Andrew Lang and his associates managed to break the stranglehold of the pious sentimentality handed out to children by collecting- from all over the world- fairy tales of all peoples, and bringing out the volumes we all know and love. Now- in modern dress, with better type and paper, and with imaginative and appropriate drawings, today's children, who- I maintain- still like fairy tales- can have their Lang shelves, too. These two we've seen- the rest are coming. Mary Gould Davis, story teller without peer, has written the introductions.
