The Brown Fairy Book

Description

The Brown Fairy book is a delectable assortment of adventures from all over the world. Stories came from Persia, Australia, Africa; others originated in Brazil, India, New Caledonia, and other lands. One tells of a witch who used a magic ball to steal children (Ball-Carrier and the Bad One); another takes place at a time when birds were men and men were birds (Pivi and Kabo); a third deals with the magic world of gnomes and water nympths (Rubezahl). Exotic tales from far-away places, the stories here are different enough to captivate the young imagination; familiar enough so that boys and girls everywhere will listen and understand.
