The Strange Story Book (version 2)


Read by Linda Andrus

(4.6 stars; 8 reviews)


This is the last book in the The Andrew Lang "Color" Fairy Books series published after his death by his wife. She wrote the stories and he had edited them before his demise. It is a collection of stories that are a bit different than the Fairy Books: still colorful and well written but telling tales about decidedly odd topics. A word of Caution: please read the stories before your children do, some of them contain some violent imagery. - Summary by Linda Andrus
