This volume contains 24 tales collected in and around Wales. In most cases amended as little as possible recording the stories as told, so that the written story seemed as if was being presented in the vernacular. A proportion of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to the Prince's Trust. Why do we call such a collection Fairy Tales? Well, when last did you hear a child say 'One more folk tale please' or 'Another nursery tale, please, grandma'? Fairy tales are stories in which occurs something 'fairy', something extraordinary--fairies, giants, dwarfs, speaking animals, or the remarkable stupidity of some of the characters. Stories of fairy interaction with humans - where the kind and thoughtful are blessed and the thoughtless and spiteful are punished. This volume contains twenty-four such tales collected from around Wales by P. H. Emerson whilst living in Anglesea during the winter 1891-2. In most cases he amended them as little as possible, preferring to record the stories as told, staying true to the original, so that the written story would enchant readers as though it were being presented in the vernacular. So take some time out and travel back to a period before television and radio, a time when families would gather around a crackling and spitting hearth and granddad or grandma or uncle or auntie would delight and captivate the gathering with stories passed on to them from their parents and grandparents from time immemorial. 33% of the publisher's profit from the sale of this book will be donated to the Princes Trust.
