This 1909 collection of 42 stories is well written and most of the tales are new. They are from Spain, Japan, India, Celt, China, France, Russia, England, Persia, Portugal, Scandinavia, and Germany. The famous writers Voltaire and Anderson composed a couple. The following are several examples.

"I Wonder" is about a king who is bothered because a huge magical tree is blocking his view. Every time that someone chops it grows taller. He also wants a well, but his ground is full of rocks. And he wants water from the well, but his castle is on a mountain far from belowground water. He promises his daughter and half his kingdom to whomever solves these three problems. A young man finds the solution because he is very curious.

"What the Birds said" is a story of a young man who understands the language of birds and several adventures he had because of his skill.

"The Smith and the Fairies" shows how a father is able to rescue his son from fairies who kidnapped him.

One of several book I have receintly added for my grand children. A great opportunity, Kindle has several children's book that you can download for little to no cost. I have added several classics (The Velviteen Rabit) among others. The kids like them and they are exposed to some of the classic children's stories.

It was a very good book. My children really enjoyed it and did not want me to stop reading to them.

It's hard to complain about a book you got for free, but this wasn't even worth the time to download. I only got through the first 3 or 4 stories with my daughter. I put forth a concentrated effort to translate the stories from broken, archaic, English to something that a child might actually understand, only to realize that the stories really weren't worth the effort. They weren't horrible, just not very good.

Many of these stories are very difficult to find so it's nice they're in a collection. Not all children's stories are well suited to reading in digital format, but these work just fine since they don't rely on pictures or sketches to any significant degree.

There are a lot of typographical problems in the Kindle version. I bought this because I had a hard copy of this as a child and really liked the stories.

When I was about 9 my parents picked up a very old copy of this in an antique bookstore in Chicago. It became a favorite of mine and I read it many, many times. I don't know what happened to that copy but I'm so glad I was able to find it here - I plan to read it to my daughter when she's a little older, maybe 5 or so. I'm sure it will fuel her imagination the same way it did mine. I'm not sure why one reviewer said they are too difficult for a child too grasp...they were written for children, not adults! I don't see how they can fail to enchant a child unless that child is uber sheltered or you haven't bothered to discuss any meaningful themes with them - in which case you need to start!
