Bewitched and haunted forests, chests of gold coins magically gained, giants and dwarves, monsters and magicians, fairies and ogres - these are the companions who thrill young boys and girls of all lands and times, as Andrew Lang's phenomenally successful collections of stories have proved. From the day that they were first printed, the Lang fairy tale books of many colors have entertained thousands of boys and girls, as they have also brought pleasure to the many parents who have read these unforgettable classics to their children. In The Violet Fairy Book, we hear strange and exotic tales from the far corners of the earth - Japanese, Serbian, Lithuanian, African, Portuguese, Rumanian, and Russian. But they are told in the common language of the fairy tale, and their events will be familiar to children and grown-ups alike. A magical dog called Schippeitaro helps his Japanese master; a man outwits a dragon in a Rumanian tale; and a Swahili story tells about a youth who visits the King of Snakes.
