Originally published in 1895 and again in 1907, American Indian Fairytales is a collection compiled for children and young adults. Originally published under the title Snow Bird and the Water Tiger and other American Indian Tales, this volume includes 17 stories of magical feathers, fighting hares, an island of skeletons, great wizards, and bended rocks. A description of the Iagoo, the teller of the stories contained in this book, also waits within. The author, Margaret Compton, drew on authentic lore and anthropological research from a wide variety of sources, including the Smithsonian Institute and US government reports. Markedly, she retains some of the most colourful story elements, such as grotesque monsters and cross-dressing characters, which some other authors and publishers of her day (and possibly ours) might have omitted. She further maintained the authenticity of the works by sprinkling throughout stereotypical language references of the time, including "squaw," "papoose," and "wigwam." American Indian Fairytales also provides an interesting window into the attitudes of the past; we encourage readers to think upon how attitudes have changed in the century since this book was originally published. So join with us and journey back to a time when these stories were told around campfires, to the delight of young and old alike. A percentage of the net sale will be donated to the American Indian Education Fund.

The all new essays in this book discuss black cultural retellings of traditional, European fairy tales. The representation of black protagonists in such tales helps to shape children’s ideas about themselves and the world beyond—which can ignite a will to read books representing diverse characters. The need for a multicultural text set which includes the multiplicity of cultures within the black diaspora is discussed. The tales referenced in the text are rich in perspective: they are Aesop’s fables, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Ananse. Readers will see that stories from black perspectives adhere to the dictates of traditional literary conventions while still steeped in literary traditions traceable to Africa or the diaspora.

Can fairy tales subvert consumerism? Can fantasy and children's literature counter the homogenizing influence of globalization? Can storytellers retain their authenticity in the age of consumerism? These are some of the critical questions raised by Jack Zipes, the celebrated scholar of fairy tales and children's literature. In this book, Zipes argues that, despite a dangerous reconfiguration of children as consumers in the civilizing process, children's literature, fairy tales, and storytelling possess a uniquely powerful (even fantastic)capacity to resist the "relentless progress" of negative trends in culture. He also argues that these tales and stories may lose their power if they are too diluted by commercialism and merchandising. Stories have been used for centuries as a way to teach children (and adults) how to see the world, as well as their place within it. In Relentless Progress, Zipes looks at the surprising ways that stories have influenced people within contemporary culture and vice versa. Among the many topics explored here are the dumbing down of books for children, the marketing of childhood, the changing shape of feminist fairy tales, and why American and British children aren’t exposed to more non-western fairy tales. From picture books to graphic novels, from children’s films to video games, from Grimm’s fairy tales to the multimedia Harry Potter phenomenon, Zipes demonstrates that while children’s stories have changed greatly in recent years, much about these stories have remained the same—despite their contemporary, high-tech repackaging. Relentless Progress offers remarkable insight into why classic folklore and fairy tales should remain an important part of the lives of children in today’s digital culture.

These Shan stories have been taken from the great mass of unwritten lore that is to the boys and girls of the Shan mountain country of Burma what "Rapunzel", “Snow White” and "Cinderella" are to Western children. Herein you will find the illustrated stories of How Boh Han Me Got His Title, Story Of The Princess Nang Kam Ung, How The Hare Deceived The Tiger, How The World Was Created, How The King Of Pagan Caught The Thief and many more. In Shan folk-lore the hero does not "marry and live happy ever after," but he becomes the king of the country, which, we guess, is a pretty good substitute. These stories are purely native, with as little mixture of Western ideas as it was possible to give them in dressing them in their garment of English words. They will give a better insight into what the native of Burma really is. As such, our hope is they will be found to be more interesting to children and the avid folklorist alike. A percentage of the net profit from the sale of this book will be donated to the Phaung Daw Oo Monastic Education High School, Mandalay, Myanmar. Author Write Up: William C Griggs is the compiler of “Shan Folklore from the Hill and Water Country”. Griggs was a Missionary-Doctor based at the American Baptist Shan Mission House, in Bhamo, Burma over a century ago. It was not unusual for Asian people to be more open and sharing with doctors than with bureaucrats and officials, who were viewed more with suspicion than favour. Indeed at about the same time Dr. A. L. Shelton, also a missionary-doctor, gathered similar stories from the time he spent treating the Tibetan people of the Himalyas. Missionary societies then published these folk stories as a way of raising funds to support their societies missionary work abroad.

The fairy tale may be one of the most important cultural and social influences on children's lives. But until Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion, little attention had been paid to the ways in which the writers and collectors of tales used traditional forms and genres in order to shape children's lives – their behavior, values, and relationship to society. As Jack Zipes convincingly shows, fairy tales have always been a powerful discourse, capable of being used to shape or destabilize attitudes and behavior within culture. For this new edition, the author has revised the work throughout and added a new introduction bringing this classic title up to date.

Soils and national characters differ, but fairy tales are often the same in plot and incidents, if not in style. Most of the 27 illustrated tales in this volume of Indian fairy tales are known in the West in some form or other; how can we account for their simultaneous existence in both Europe and Asia? In this volume we find stories about Punchkin, the evil magician, and the quaint myth: "How Sun, Moon, and Wind went out to Dinner," the magic fiddle, the broken pot, the tiger, the Brahman, the Jackal, and more. In short, Jacobs has made this book a representative collection of all the fairy tales of India. Some have declared that India is the home of the fairy tale, and that all European fairy tales have been brought from thence by crusaders, Mongol missionaries, Gypsies, Jews, traders, and many other travellers. After all, India is on one branch of the fabled Silk and Spice Routes, over which Europeans and Asians have been travelling for several millennia. We should be prepared, within certain limits, to hold a brief for India. The common fairy stories of the children of Europe, which form a greater part of their stories as a whole, are derived from Indian tales. In particular, the majority of the Drolls, or comic tales and jingles, can be traced without much difficulty back to the Indian peninsula. To assemble this volume, Jacobs has selected the best from the Jatakas, the Bidpai, the Tales of the Sun, the Baluchi folk-tales, and the folk-tales of Kashmir. It is only a further proof that fairy tales are something more than Celtic or Hindoo-they are human. So curl up with a sliver of the Indian sub-continent and lose yourself in a culture and lifestyle of the ancient, Eastern past.
