The great beauty of Andrew Lang’s Blue Fairy
Book, originally published in 1889, is that it
brought together many different fairy tale
traditions. There are stories written by Charles
Perrault and Mme d’Aulnoy, collected by the
Grimm brothers and Asbjornsen and Moe, and
translated from the Arabian Nights. It is a very
rich collection of fairy tales.
However, the stories are written in a language
that is outdated and in places inaccessible to
modern American children (and even their
parents). To remedy this problem, I have
thoroughly edited some of the stories contained
in Lang`s book, keeping the stories as intact as
possible, while revising every sentence so the
stories can once again be read with pleasure by
