Before Penelope could toddle she lived far away among the oleanders. She sat on the grass and played with them, and they loved her. These stories have been written for Penelope, so that she may love the fairies, and keep the sunbeam in her heart.

The all-time classic collection of ageless tales of myth and magic, illustrated, easy to read edition. One of the books upon which Western culture is founded. Fascinating reading for children, and an education for adults.
