Publisher's Summary

Joseph Jacobs was an Australian folklorist who documented fairy tales from around the world, including many that went on to become the "definitive" versions of well-loved classics such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and the Three Little Pigs.

This charming collection of traditional Indian stories includes some of the oldest stories in the world and features wicked queens, the snake prince, an ivory city, cranes and tigers, terrifying demons, kings and palaces, fairy princesses, and a whole host of talking animals - including a tortoise!

As Jacobs was also a historian, the stories carry many parallels with European folk tales. Written in 1892 in an appealing and simple style, these fairy tales are perfect for bedtime!
