My Book of Favorite Fairy Tales. They’re back, the old, old legends, the best of them all; dear Cinderella, evil old Bluebeard, little Thumbling, lovely Beauty and the hideous Beast, and a host of others. However, I can assure you that the ancient stories are always new, and must always be, because new children read them every day, and to these, of course, these old tales may have been written yesterday.
