Andrew Lang has put together a fantastic collection of tales in his rainbow fairy books. His writing/editing is perfect for reading aloud to children of all ages, and there are wonderful black and white illustrations throughout the book. ( )

I fondly remember borrowing this from the library as a child. It's still fun to read as an adult. Appreciate the preface and the appendixes, etc, much more now. ( )
