Dramatic Reader for Lower Grades –by: Florence Holbrook

Despite the title's bland sounding name, this book is a charming collection of 16 plays for children. These little plays—well-known stories done into dialogue—were written for children who like to imagine themselves living with their favorite characters in forest, in palace, or in fairyland. Included are Cinderella, Robin Hood, William Tell, Hansel and Gretel and many more.

The Mafulu

The Mafulu, Mountain People of British New Guinea
By Robert W. Williamson
INTRODUCTION By Dr. A.C. Haddon It is a great pleasure to me to introduce Mr. Williamson's book to the notice of ethnologists and the general public, as I am convinced that it will be read with interest and profit. Perhaps I may be permitted in this place to make a few personal remarks. Mr. Williamson was formerly a solicitor, and always had a great longing to see something of savage life, but it was not till about four years ago that he saw his way to attempting the realisation of this desire by an expedition to M...

Das M"archen von dem Myrtenfr"aulein

Clemens Brentano

Im sandigen Lande, wo nicht viel Grünes w"achst, wohnten einige Meilen von der prozellanenen Hauptstadt, wo der Prinz Wetschwuth residierte, ein T"opfer und seine Frau mitten auf ihrem Tonfeld neben ihrem T"opferofen, beide ohne Kinder, einsam und allein. Das Land war ringsum so flach wie ein See, kein Baum und Busch war zu sehen, und es war gar betrübt und langweilig. T"aglich beteten die guten Le...

American Fairy Tales –by: L. Frank Baum

This collection of fantasy stories was originally serialized in regional newspapers, prior to being published as a complete volume. The stories, as critics have noted, lack the high-fantasy aspect of the best of Baum’s work, in Oz or out. With ironic or nonsensical morals attached to their ends, their tone is more satirical, glib, and tongue-in-cheek than is usual in children’s stories; the serialization in newspapers for adult readers was appropriate for the materials. (Introduction by Wikipedia and Matthew Reece)

A book of Jugoslav Fairy Tales and Folk Tales.

RETOLD BY PARKER FILLMORE

With illustrations and decorations by Jay Van Everen.

When Mr. Fillmore started his study of the folk lore of Eastern Europe, he tapped a mine of treasure for children. The gorgeousness of the imagery in the stories, their rollicking humor, the adventures, were entirely new to child and adult readers. The stories in this third volume reflect the folk lore of many races, for the country now known as Jugoslavia has been one of the great highways and battlefi...
