Content The Orange Fairy Book:
Notes: Includes 33 tales from Jutland, Rhodesia, Uganda, and various other European traditions: “The Magic Mirror,” “The Two Caskets,” “The Clever Cat,” “The White Slipper,” “The Girl-Fish, and more.” In his preface to the final title in our Rainbow Fairy Book series, Andrew Lang describes the diverse origins of these tales. They vary from ‘The Ugly Duckling’ by Hans Christian Andersen to ‘The White Slipper’ – a reversal of the Cinderella story, in which the king loses his precious white slipper and offers his daughter’s hand to whoever finds it.
