Francis Hindes Groome collated and published this collection in 1899, making only few changes and remaining true to the original stories, so to let the written story enchant us as if it were being told in the vernacular. 

The stories are further enhanced by the numerous impressive black and white and colour illustrations recently completed by Maggie Gunzel the Dutch artist and illustrator who, unlike many illustrators of the 19th C. and 20th C, has stayed true to the subject matter.

A percentage of the net sale from this book will be donated to the RELIEF FUND FOR ROMANIA.

See the book's webpage for a full list of the 76 tales in this exquisite volume.
