The Crimson Fairy Book –by: Andrew Lang

The Crimson Fairy Book contains thirty-six stories collected from around the world and edited by Andrew Lang.

He has also been used as a character who is prone to telling lies and fabricating stories for various reasons. The story has appeared in many adaptations in other mediums. Pinocchio has been called an icon of modern culture, and one of most reimagined characters in the pantheon of children'...

Full Revelations of a Professional Rat-Catcher, after 25 Years' Experience
By Ike Matthews. INTRODUCTION. In placing before my readers in the following pages the results of my twenty-five years' experience of Rat-catching, Ferreting, etc., I may say that I have always done my best to accomplish every task that I have undertaken, and I have in consequence received excellent testimonials from many corporations, railway companies, and merchants.
