The Pink Fairy Book


Read by Elliott Miller

(4.9 stars; 33 reviews)

All people in the world tell nursery tales to their children, and the stories are apt to be like each other everywhere. A child who has read the Blue and Red and Yellow Fairy Books will find some old friends with new faces in the Pink Fairy Book. Courage, youth, beauty, kindness, have many trials, but they always win the battle; while witches, giants, unfriendly cruel people, are on the losing hand. So it ought to be, and so, on the whole, it is and will be; and that is all the moral of fairy tales. We cannot all be young, alas! and pretty, and strong; but nothing prevents us from being kind, and no kind man, woman, or beast or bird, ever comes to anything but good in these oldest fables of the world.

Reviews

Delightful stories and narration

(5 stars)

Elliott Miller does a superb job of narrating stories from many different countries. I must admit I am a bit of a fairy tale junkie and many of the stories were new to me. Although I will always be partial to the stories of Der Brüder Grimm, Andrew Lang introduces some old friends from Germany and new ones from other lands such as Denmark and Japan. Many thanks to Elliott for bringing the characters to life with his amusing voices and animated narrative style. This audio book will make your trips to the office much more enjoyable!

oddly one of my favorites

(5 stars)

Great. it seems the colors have little or no correspondance with the style or nature of the stories, for pink is one of the best of the collection and is overall a great audio book. one of the best readers of the entire color fairy story collection reads the entire book! no indecipherable foreign accents, squeeling young women or ridiculous wannabe voice actors. now if only Mr Miller would go redo a version of all the other stories in the series we'd have a amazing collection of fairy tales.

Merry Christmas!!
