In every country there is a place where good wishes come true: where the poor and the lonely are rich in castles and friends: and where sorrowful folk are happy. Here you will hear the birds singing and children laughing, all day long. The trees are full of blossoms and fruit. The sky is always blue, the grass green and soft. Under the trees dwell the fairies, and against the blue sky you will sometimes see the sheen of angels’ wings as the flit by. It is from this place that these children’s stories originate. But beware, some, a few, of these stories also contain sadness. Why? Because these stories are used to teach children the lessons of life, albeit in a more gentle way.

So, we invite you to curl up with this unique sliver of Greek Fairy culture not seen in print for over a century; and immerse yourself in the tales and fables of yesteryear made more believable by the 41 pen and ink illustrations by Henriette Reiss.
