Book Excerpt: 
. . .It was not long before the Fiddler found the little wooden plug, and then nothing would do but he must take a peep inside the nut to see if Ill-Luck was really there. So he picked and pulled at the wooden plug, until at last out it came; and—phst! pop! out came Ill-Luck along with it.

Plague take the Fiddler! say I.

"Listen," says Ill-Luck. "It has been many a long day that I have been in that hazel-nut, and you are the man that has let me out; for once in a way I will do a good turn to a poor human body." Therewith, and without giving the Fiddler time to speak a word, Ill-Luck caught him up by the belt, and—whiz! away he flew like a bullet, over hill and over valley; over moor and over mountain, so fast that not enough wind was left in the Fiddler's stomach to say "Bo!"

By-and-by he came to a garden, and there he let the Fiddler drop on the soft grass below. Then away he flew to attend to other matters of greater need.

I enjoyed N.D. Wilson's introduction to this book of classic fairy tales. The tales start to sound very similar if you read it straight through like I did! I can recommend it for the Logos Library.

Love it.

I think this might have been my favorite of the books in the Howard Pyle collection I had. Interesting and engaging collection of tales.

This was my May 2016 read for the Classics Club. These stories had some surprising depth to them and I think Ellie and Marko will enjoying hearing them eventually.

I love these old tales that hearken back to and sound very much like even OLDER tales. And, though to many it may not matter (for me, especially when dealing with "fairy tales," it does), the illustrations are completely gorgeous and there aren't an overwhelming number of them. The only reason I...more

Written towards the end of the 1800's, my book had checkouts from the 1950's. I read "Wisdom's Wages and Folly's Pay". The story tells of a young foolish man and a wizard who cross paths. Shortly after meeting, the wizard has enough of the man's stupidity and leaves the man. But, he leaves the ma...more

I finally finished this one, which should have taken me a week to read. It was very much like The Arabian Nights and I am, nearly, certain that it had to influence Jack Vance. Now I can read some more Moorcock.

This is a book I've been able to go back to over and over again. At this point, I think I've read it enough times to be able to recall most of the stories off the top of my mind (maybe not word for word, but pretty close).
Who cares if this book was made for a younger audience? I'm almost a legal...more
