From Robert Brownings Pied Piper of Hamelin and William Makepeace Thackerays Rose and the Ring to Kenneth Grahames Reluctant Dragon and J. M. Barries Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, here are seventeen classic stories and poems from the golden age of the English fairy tale. Some of them amuse, some enchant, some satirize and criticize, but each onein the words of Laurence Houseman, author of the classic Rocking-Horse Land is an expression of the joy of living.
