This is the third of twelve colored Fairy Books. The stories in all the books are borrowed from many countries; some are French, some German, some Russian, some Italian, some Scottish, some English, one Chinese. These fairy tales are the oldest stories in the world. Some were made, no doubt, not only to amuse, but to teach goodness. You see, in the tales, that the child who is kind to beasts, and polite, and generous, and brave, always comes out best.
