Jewish Fairy Tales and Legends

Gertrude LANDA (1892 - ?)

"My desire is to give boys and girls something Jewish which they may be able to regard as companion delights to the treasury of general fairy-lore and childish romance." from the preface. These tales deal with the boyish exploits of the great Biblical characters, Abraham, Moses, and David. "These I have rewritten from the stories in the Talmud and Midrash in a manner suitable for the children of to-day." - Summary by Phil Chenevert and the author
