Perhaps the best and handsomest of these tales of wonder is " The Green Fairy Book," edited by Andrew Lang. This is the third of Andrew Lang's stories of fairies, the blue book and the red book having preceded it. It is a volume of folklore. His stories are adapted from the tales of France, Germany, Russia, Italy, Scotland, England, and even China. It is enough to say that when such clever women as Madame d'Aulnoy and Mrs. Lang contribute to the book it must be really good.

The Biographies
ANDREW LANG by Edmund Gosse
SPENCER WALPOLE AND ANDREW LANG by Horace G. Hutchinson
Sleeping Beauty Stories includes several stories across several decades from the beginning of is imaginative creation. The story that brought to life the sensational Maleficent the new Disney movie. Includes the stories of Andrew Lang (1844-1912), Charles Perrault, and others. The story: At the christening of a king and queen's long-wished-for child, seven fairies are invited to be godmothers to the infant princess. At the banquet back at the palace, the fairies seat themselves with a golden casket containing golden jeweled utensils laid before them. However, a fairy who was overlooked, having been within a certain tower for many years and thought to be either dead or enchanted, enters and is offered a seating, but not a golden casket since only seven were made. The fairies then offer their gifts of beauty, wit, grace, dance, song and music. The bad fairy, angry at being overlooked, places the princess under an enchantment as her gift: the princess will prick her hand on a spindle and die. One fairy who hadn't yet given her gift, uses it to reverse the evil fairy's curse, but she can only do so partially: instead of dying, the princess will fall into a deep sleep for 100 years and be awoken by a king's son. A hundred years pass and a prince from another family spies the hidden castle during a hunting expedition. His attendants tell him differing stories regarding the happenings in the castle until an old man recounts his father's words: within the castle lies a beautiful princess who is doomed to sleep for a hundred years, whereupon a king's son is to come and awaken her.
