Revisiting the stories now in my seventh decade, the content bears little resemblance to my memories of them when, with my Mother's patient encouragement, I waded into them when I was seven. And what I certainly didn't remember then was Kipling's quote now on the back cover of the 1995 edition of 'Rewards and Fairies' by Wordsworth Classics: 'The tales had to be read by children, before people realised they were meant for grown-ups'.
Some editions are better than others. My favourites are those illustrated by HR Millar. His pictures are a great help in bringing the characters to life and fixing the periods in which the stories take place. These very clearly tell the reader that the 'fairies' bear no resemblance whatsoever to those with wands and wings.
