Y is for FairY Tales or Not-Young Books

Y is for fairY tales...

For this year's A to Z I'm featuring books I've read based on the Reading Challenge.

Today's book is a book more than 100 years old.

I have a few such books in our library, but most are in storage! I thought it might be fun to talk about fairy tales instead.

Here are a few of my favourite authors:

Hans Christian Andersen

My favourite story: The Girl Who Trod on the Loaf

Andrew Lang

The coloured fairy books! (sorry, upside down again)
I happily own all of them, but could only bring one with us, unfortunately.

My favourite story: from the Nursery Rhyme book, Ken Ye the Rhyme to Porringer? (because of the Gaiman Tolkien connection!)

The Brothers Grimm

My favourite story: The Six Swans

Charles Perrault

My favourite story: Puss in Boots

There're also Walter de la Mare, Eleanor Farjeon, Edward Lear, and many other authors.

ROW80 in brief!: I have a couple of days off work coming up. And so many exciting A to Z blog posts to catch up on!

Which fairy tales do you love?
