SHE PUT HER GOOD STEED TO THE WALLS AND LEAPT LIGHTLY OVER THEM from the story HOW STAVR THE NOBLE WAS SAVED BY A WOMAN’S WILES in The Russian Story Book

SHE PUT HER GOOD STEED TO THE WALLS AND LEAPT LIGHTLY OVER THEM from the story HOW STAVR THE NOBLE WAS SAVED BY A WOMAN’S WILES in The Russian Story Book collated and retold by Richard Wilson, illustrated by Frank C. Papé.

The story goes thus – Stavr the Noble lived in Chernigof, and when the daughter of Prince Vladimir was honoured at her father’s feast he was among the guests. Despite all his riches and wealth he counted one treasure above all else – his wife Vasilissa.

The table of Prince Validmir was silent at the end of Stavr’s speech until someone said:

“Prince Vladimir, Fair Sun of Kiev, it is not meet to permit this boaster to flout us all. Let him be cast into a cold, dark dungeon, and then let his young wife Vasilissa buy all Kiev town in one market and sell it in the next, let her by her wiles deceive us all, and let her, if she can, drive even Prince Vladimir out of his mind.”

And so the challenge was laid and Lord Stavr was cast into a prison for his wife Vasilissa to rescue by using her wiles.

NIGHTINGALE THE ROBBER FELL FROM THE TREE from the story ILYA AND NIGHTINGALE THE ROBBER in the book The Russian Story Book

NIGHTINGALE THE ROBBER FELL FROM THE TREE from the story ILYA AND NIGHTINGALE THE ROBBER in The Russian Story Book collated and retold by Richard Wilson, illustrated by Frank C. Papé.

This is the story of the first of the nightingales, each of whom, as the old books tell, sprang from a poppy seed. And the sower of the first seeds of the blood-red poppy was Ilya the Old Cossáck, who rode the shaggy bay steed Cloudfall.

Charles Perrault ranks alongside Hans Christian Andersen and the Grimms as a master storyteller. Perhaps he is less well known because he had done in the late 1600,s what the Grimm Bros. did in the mid-1800’s, which overshadowed his earlier achievements. In fact the Grimm Bros. translated a lot of Perrault’s stories into German and rebranded them in their own volumes.

 

Like Dickens and Andersen in their time, during his own age Perrault (1628 – 1703) was one of the best-liked personages and has remained ever since a prime favourite. Everyone likes a man who enjoys life. Perrault was such a man and he was more. He was the cause of enjoyment to countless of his fellow countrymen, and his stories still promise enjoyment to countless more to come. We are fortunate in knowing a great deal about his varied life, deriving our knowledge mainly from D’Alembert’s history of the French Academy and from his own memoirs.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SUN 8 illustrated fairy stories for children. The stories in this volume by Evelyn Sharp are original stories, not retellings of fairy stories from the mists of time like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty etc.

They are:
The Weird Witch Of The Willow-Herb
The Magician’s Tea-Party
The Hundredth Princess
Somebody Else’s Prince
The Tears Of Princess Prunella
The Palace On The Floor
The Lady Daffodilia
The Kite That Went To The Moon

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Evelyn Jane Sharp (1869–1955) was a key figure in two major British women’s suffrage societies, the militant Women’s Social and Political Union and the United Suffragists and an established author. She helped found the United Suffragists and became editor of Votes for Women during the First World War. She was twice imprisoned and became a tax resister. An established author who had published in The Yellow Book, she was especially well known for her children’s fiction, namely, All the Way to Fairyland (1898) and The Other Side of the Sun (1900). REVIEW
Miss Sharp has wit, wisdom, and imagination for her initial equipment, but she possesses also what is rarer far—the accent and the point of view. For instance, she would never introduce a bicycle into this old-fashioned country. She knows perfectly well that if there should be any occasion for hurry—which is rarely the case in Fairyland—naturally you take a rocking-horse.—The Academy, Literature Review, London.

10% of the net sale will be donated to charities by the publisher.
