I love the Color Fairy Books edited by Andrew Lang. I read through the library collection in a few weeks when I was a kid. When I encountered the Orange Fairy Book at a used book sale, I immediately bought it.

So on the review - I read a few of these stories at night before bed. They are as great as I remember them. These stories were all new to me, with the exception of the Ugly Duckling. Some were better than others, but all were fun to read. This is a collection of fairy tales from around the world. From Africa to the American Indians, with many stories from Old World Europe.

Fun to read, easy tales to read before bed. Completely recommended.
