The 26 tales in this collection, were gathered from various parts of Canada—at a time when the most convenient method of travel was by the Canadian waterways. The compiler traveled the rivers, lakes and oceans where sailors and fishermen still watched the stars. He gathered them in forest clearings where lumbermen still retained remnants of the old and now vanished way of life; where Indians used to barter for their goods and from remote country places where women spin and speak with reverence of the days of their fathers. The 26 tales in this volume are: How Glooskap Made The Birds The Rabbit And The Grain Buyers Saint Nicholas And The Children The Fall Of The Spider Man The Boy Who Was Called Thick-Head Rabbit And The Indian Chief Great Heart And The Three Tests The Boy Of The Red Twilight Sky How Raven Brought Fire To The Indians The Girl Who Always Cried Ermine And The Hunter How Rabbit Deceived Fox The Boy And The Dragon Owl With The Great Head And Eyes The Tobacco Fairy From The Blue Hills Rainbow And The Autumn Leaves Rabbit And The Moon-Man The Children With One Eye The Giant With The Grey Feathers The Cruel Stepmother The Boy Who Was Saved By Thoughts The Song-Bird And The Healing Waters The Boy Who Overcame The Giants The Youth And The Dog-Dance Sparrow's Search For The Rain The Boy In The Land Of Shadows The skeleton of each story has been left for the most part unchanged, although the languages differ somewhat from that of the story-tellers from whose lips the writer heard them. Fairy tales make a universal appeal both to old and young; to the young because it is the fantasy world into which they can retreat, and to the old because they are conscious again of the spirit of youth as they read such tales to their children and grandchildren, and rejoice in the illusion that after all there is not a great difference of age which separates the generations. ============== TAGS: Folklore, fairy tales, myths, legends, children’s stories, childrens, fables, bedtime, Canadian, North American, American Indian, Native American, First Nation, Glooskap, Made The Birds, Rabbit, Grain Buyers, Saint Nicholas, Fall, Spider Man, Boy, Thick-Head, Indian Chief, Great Heart, Three Tests, Red, Twilight Sky, Raven, Fire, Girl, Always Cried, Ermine, Hunter, Deceive, Fox, Dragon, Owl, Great Head, Eyes, Tobacco, Fairy, Blue Hills, Rainbow, Autumn Leaves, Moon-Man, One Eye, Giant, Grey Feathers, Cruel Stepmother, Thoughts, Song-Bird, Healing Waters, Overcame, overcome, Youth, Dog-Dance, Sparrow, Search, Rain, Land Of Shadows

This book has especially been republished to raise funds for the BBC’s Children in Need appeals. This book is compiled of 26 old, rare and forgotten Fairy Tales and stories taken from books in Abela Publishing’s series “Folk-Lore, Fairytales, Myths and Legends from Around the World” - a series created to raise funds for charities and underprivileged individuals. Keeping true to our vision, the intent behind this compendium is to raise funds for BBC’s Children in Need Appeal. The 26 stories and poems in this volume raising funds for the appeal are Tom Tit Tot - English King O'toole And His Goose - Irish The Origin Of Loch Ness - Scottish The Widow And Her Daughters - Scottish Fair, Brown And Trembling - Irish The Perfidious Vizier - Arabian The Frog's Skin – Rep. of Georgia Turtle-Dove, Sage-Cock And The Witch - American Indian A Story About A Giant And The Cause Of Thunder – West Africa The Parrot's Song - Armenian poem The Emperor Tenchi – Japanese poem The Beggar King - Israeli The Foolish, Timid Rabbit – Jataka Tale Cradle Song – Armenian poem The Charmed Ring - India The Thirteenth Son Of The King Of Erin - Celtic The Minister Michi-Nobu Fujiwara – Japanese poem The Monkey’s Fiddle – Kalahari Bushmen The Daughter Of The Rose - Romania The Gypsy And The Dragon – Bukowina Gypsy How The Sacred Duck Got His Yellow Breast - Tibet The Story Of Gelert - Wales Why The Kingfisher Always Wears A War Bonnet – American Indian How Sun, Moon, And Wind Went Out To Dinner - India Twas The Night Before Christmas – Viking Version The Tail - Celtic The words 'Fairy Tales' must be taken to include tales in which something 'fairy', something extraordinary occurs -- fairies, giants, dwarfs, speaking animals. One cannot imagine a child saying, 'Tell me a folk-tale', or 'Another nursery tale, please, grandma'. It must also be taken to cover tales in which something magical happens. Mostly it is the comical stupidity of some of the actors, as is so common in moral tales. In buying this book you will be giving in more than one way. Once to the Children in Need appeal and again, to yourself, as you read and enjoy stories not read for many a year. But should you perchance happen to read these stories to your children, nieces and nephews or grand-children, you will be giving yet again. 50% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to the appeal. So take some time out and travel back to a period before television, or even radio for that matter, when families would gather around a crackling and spitting hearth and granddad or grandma or an uncle or aunt would delight and captivate their audience with stories passed on to them from their mothers, fathers and grandparents. =============== TAGS: Folklore, fairy tales, myths, legends, children’s stories, bedtime, fables, lore, Children in Need, Appeal, Tom Tit Tot, English, King O'toole, Goose, Ireland, Origin Of Loch Ness, Scotland, Widow, Daughters, Fair, Brown, Trembling, Perfidious Vizier, Arabia, Frog's Skin, Turtle-Dove, Sage-Cock, Witch, Giant, Cause Of Thunder, West Africa, Parrot's Song, Armenia, Emperor Tenchi, Beggar King, Jewish, Foolish, Timid Rabbit, Cradle Song, Charmed Ring, Thirteenth Son, King Of Erin, Celtic, Minister, Fujiwara, Japan, Monkey’s Fiddle, Jataka, Daughter, Rose, Romania, Gypsy, Dragon, Sacred Duck, Yellow Breast, Tibet, Gelert, wales, Kingfisher, War Bonnet, American Indian, Sun, Moon, Wind, Out To Dinner, India, Night Before Christmas, Viking, Tail

Herein are 26 folk and fairy tales from the Central European nation of Serbia. IT is only within the last few years that folklore and fairy tales have been dramatised and turned into film for television and the silver screen. Here the popular legends, tales, drolls, and extravagances, which have been handed down from generation to generation among the labourers, peasants and youth of a nation, are being given a new breath of life, and a lot of them originate from Central Europe. Some of the tales in this volume are: The Wonderful Kiosk, The Snake’s Gift, The Golden Apple-Tree, And The Nine Peahens, Papalluga, Good Deeds Are Never Lost, Bird Girl, Sir Peppercorn, Bash-Chalek, The Trade That No One Knows, The Legend Of St. George - plus many more. Settled during the 6th and 7th C following the Slavic migrations, the Kingdom of Serbia was formerly recognised by Rome and the Byzantine Empire in 1217AD. Its capital, Belgrade, ranks among the oldest and largest cities in southeastern Europe. Serbia was annexed by the Ottoman Empire and later the Habsburg Empire. Following WWI Serbia helped co-found Yugoslavia with other South Slavic peoples, which existed in various political formations until the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s. Under the yolk of communism from the late 1940’s to 1989, many traditional and religious beliefs were suppressed in favour of the communist mantra – but here 26 have been uncovered for you and your children to enjoy. Over the centuries, it is clear that Serbian folklore has had a number of influences which are now indelibly woven into the fabric of the nation and there is no better place to taste the flavours of this rich mix than in the folklore of Serbia. 10% of the net from the sale of this book will be donated to Charities. ====================== KEYWORDS: fairy tales, folklore, myths, legends, children’s stories, children’s stories, bygone era, fairydom, fairy land, classic stories, children’s bedtime stories, fables, cultural, setting, Serbia, Servia, the bear’s son, wonderful kiosk, snake’s gift, language of animals, golden, apple-tree, nine peahens, papalluga, golden slipper, golden fleece, ram, ask little, get much, justice, injustice, satan, juggle, God’s might, wise girl, good deeds, never lost, lying, wager, wicked stepmother, bird girl, sir peppercorn, bash-chalek, true steel, shepherd, king’s daughter, princess, good turn, deserve, another, biter bit, trade, no one knows, three suitors, golden-haired, blonde, twins, dream, king’s son, prince, queen, palace, royal, three brothers, animals, friends, enemies, legend of St. George, dragon

"Giuseppe Pitrè, a nineteenth-century Sicilian physician, gathered an enormous wealth of folk and fairy tales as he traveled and treated the poor throughout Palermo. He also received tales from friends and scholars throughout the island of Sicily. A dedicated folklorist, whose significance ranks alongside the Brothers Grimm, he published a 25-volume collection of Sicilian folk tales, legends, songs, and customs between 1871 and 1914. Though first published in their original Sicilian dialect, these tales have never before been translated, collected, and published in English until now. This historic two-volume set collects 300 and 100 variants of his most entertaining and most important folk and fairy tales, along with lively, vivid illustrations by Carmelo Lettere. In stark contrast to the more literary ambitions of the Grimms' tales, Pitré's possess a charming, earthy quality that reflect the customs, beliefs, and superstitions of the common people more clearly than any other European folklore collection of the nineteenth century. Edited, translated, and with a critical introduction by world-renowned folk and fairy tale experts Jack Zipes and Joseph Russo, this collection will firmly establish Pitrè's importance as a folklorist."--Publisher's website.
