Famous Stories Every Child Should Know

Hamilton Wright MABIE (1846 - 1916)

The group of stories brought together in this volume differ from legends because they have, with one exception,no core fact at the centre, from myths because they make no attempt to personify or explain the forces or processes of nature, from fairy stories because they do not often bring to the stage actors from a different nature from ours.... The stories which make up this volume are closer to experience and come, from the most part, nearer to the every-day happenings of life. (Summary by Hamilton Wright Mabie, from the Introduction)
