I just love the color fairy book series!

so boring

(0,5 Sterne)

0.5 this is not very good so boring stories not interesting at all other books which are written by Andrew Lang I am much better I like them very much but this is very very very strange the stories are all very e boring and meaningless. some of the stories in yellow fairy book are very good brown fairy book story tales are something to question they are very long so you can only hear about one or two stories in an hour Joseph Jacobs has made much shorter tales which are very amusing nonetheless.

if you like fairytales

(5 Sterne)

This is one of the best in Andrew Lang collection. Not all but several of the stories are enjoyed enough to be read and reread. Rubezahl and WaliDad are favorites though you may find other gems not commonly known tales to ponder and retell. Readers were all exceptional, with soothing tone, steady cadence and clear enunciation. I’ll come back to this book again. You should definitely give it a listen.

So Awesome!
