Published in 1894, The Yellow Fairy Book is the fourth installment in the series of fairytale collections known as Andrew Lang's “Coloured” Fairy Books and is comprised of stories collected from various foreign language sources including French, German, English, Scottish, Russian, and Polish. Moreover, the tales not only intend to entertain, but also offer an underlying didactic purpose, as many of the stories place an important emphasis on righteous behavior. Featuring 48 stories, The Yellow Fairy Book includes a number of well-known tales from renowned storytellers Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm, which may just ring a bell with titles including “Thumbelina” and “Story of the Emperor’s New Clothes”. A dynamic combination of royalty, dragons, witches, a range of animals, and an unlimited supply of danger and obstacles, the compilation does not cease to amaze with its rich variety of fairy tales. Needless to say, it is a timeless piece guaranteed to enthrall both young and old readers for years to come.
