Book Description

1 Mar 2000
From the creator and artist of Raggedy Ann and Andy, this delicately designed book was first published in 1917 by Voland Company of Chicago and has been restored to its original luster in this edition. Decorating each page are whimsical, jewel-like, full-color illustrations -- among the most memorable examples of the "Sunbonnet" period of children's book illustrations from 1905-1920.

4.0 out of 5 stars take your grandchildren to this fairyland. 20 July 2005
By A. Bissegger - Published on Amazon.com
This is a treasured book from my childhood. I remember telling myself at an early age to keep this book to show my kids. Well I lost my copy and finally ordered it to read to my granddaughter.These stories teach morals and are timeless. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Ole Tales 1 July 2010
By Healing River - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book, by the author of the Raggedy Ann and Andy series, is a delightful tome of stories appropriate for ages 5 and up. The term "fairy stories" is something of a misnomer, however, as no true fairies appear or even make cameos. Instead, these stories tend to take something from nature (e.g. The Ugly Caterpillar) or something from tradition (e.g. The Discontented King) and spin these people, animals or objects into a nice anecdote to read with your little ones. And the illustrations are gorgeous!

Highly recommended if you like vintage kids books and stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY VERY OWN FAIRY STORIES 4 Nov 2012
By Dear Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
"The Rubbery Dubbery Smiles" was my favorite childhood story. Through a lifetime of moves the book in which it appears was lost. Imagine my surprise to find it now on Google and then Amazon. In its original format with original drawings, it is a feast of delight. Children of today might not love its sweet, gentle stories, but the Witch bringing her brew of smiles to a frowning world will always enchant me.

The artwork is great. It brings back memories of childhood and for me that was 70 years ago. The stories are simple and moralistic, which is fine with me as I'm not much into todays "anything goes" bit. Excellent for young children and old codgers trying to recapture their childhood. Recommended.
