  •     Grandkids loved it
  •     This is an absolutely fantastic book of original fairy tales. They were clever and fun and...just overall amazing.Despite being almost 100 years old, the stories have fairly modern values and morals, although every so often there was a sentence that made me wince and shake my head. They were pretty uncommon, so I'd still rate this book as G (if it were a movie), but if you're very, very sensitive, then you should probably read it over first. (If you're not very, very sensitive, you'll probably just laugh at me for giving the warning at all...)There is no active table of contents, and no illustrations. The captions from the pictures are still disconcertingly in the text in a few places.Contains the following tales:The Queen of Lantern LandThe Adventures of FlorianThe Seller of DreamsThe Treasure CastlePrince SneezeMariannaThe Lost Half-HourThe Enchanted ElmThe Bird-BoyThe Master MarinerThe Marvelous Dog and Wonderful CatThe Shepherd of CloudsThe City Under the Sea
  •     Excellent
  •     I bought this book for two reasons: 1) Henry Beston spent time on Cape Cod near where my parents now reside, and 2) I wanted some less well known material to read for my daughter when she gets a little older (she is only 9 months now).The writing is very simple and clear, and the stories are very direct. None of them takes long to read - the stories can generally be read in 5-10 minutes going at a decent pace - and they would work well for a young reader. There's actually a small section devoted to introducing some of the more obscure words, like 'halberdsman.'Each of these stories offers subtle lessons on how to behave, and how not to behave. They are clever and cute, and also often feature strong female characters, which is a refreshing change from the normal mainstream stuff that has most of the women requiring rescue.I've actually already read two of the stories to my daughter, and whether it was just that she liked Daddy's voice, or the stories, she actually did listen. I would definitely recommend this book for young children and young readers.
  •     The Firelight Fairy Book, published in 1919, is a delightful collection of original fairy tales (with an introduction by Theodore Roosevelt). Written in a language that is clear and direct but somehow evocative of magic, each tale is different than the one before -- enchantments, talking animals, quests, fairies, and mysterious kingdoms are all featured. I can imagine children liking these stories a great deal -- I know this adult did!
