So much contemporary fiction is ephemeral, quickly forgotten, what the works of yesteryear’s prize-winning novelists gather dust. But the great stories of folk and fairy lore are still with us, alive and ready to be told again, for they have stood the test of generations of readers and listeners.

Tales from the Panchatantra, or the Arabian Nights, or the rich folklore for Europe and Asia, continue to enchant us, both as children and as adults. The adventures of Sindbad, or Aladdin, never grow stale. Cinderella and Snow White still pull at our heart-strings. Giant killers of all sorts still stir the imagination, for as children we would all be giant killers.

Magical stories loved by children all over the globe, fairy tales have remained firm favourites of readers for centuries. In this collection, Ruskin Bond offers to you his favourite fairy tales, bringing together some amazing, unusual tales from all over the world-China, France, New Zealand, From The Green Man of Sinai-a tale from ancient Egypt, to Jivaka the Boy Wonder-a tale from India, This collection is a must-read for book enthusiasts.
