This edition has three of the folklorist Joseph Jacobs's classic fairy tale books in one: Indian, Celtic, and English.


Indian Fairy Tales is twenty-nine stories taken from popular South Asian oral history; Indian tales carried across by crusaders, Gipsies, Mongol missionaries, traders, Jews, and travellers. Jacobs has selected the best from the Baluchi folk-tales, the Jatakas, the Bidpai, the Tales of the Sun, and the folk-tales of Kashmir.


Celtic Fairy Tales filled with magic, charm, adventure, and humour. The stories were collected from Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, and Ireland. But be warned, not every story has a happy ending.


English Fairy Tales is a classic collection of that describe the fantastic adventures of witches, princes, giants, princesses, and numerous talking animals. This is not the plain, watered-down versions with happy endings; these are the darker counterparts. With classics like Jack the Giant Killer, The Three Bears, Tom Thumb, The Three Little Pigs, and Jack and the Beanstalk, as well as lesser-known stories filled with action, magic, ghosts, imps, fairies, and lost love. Delve into the dark magical world of make-believe.
