English Fairy Tales by edited by Joseph Jacobs
In this first of Jacobs' collections, many of the 43 tales will be familiar. Included are "Jack and the Beanstalk," "The Story of the Three Bears," "Henny Penny," and others. The tale of Mr. and Mrs. Vinegar who lived in a vinegar bottle, the story of "Nix Nought Nothing," of "Mollie Whuppie," and of many others are less well known and will offer a refreshing change from the well-worn favorites.
