Description

These stories are told by a jolly old jester who lays aside his cap and bells and settles down to entertain the children. His tales are quite as fascinating as the famous ones of Grimm, and they are, besides, entirely new and original, with a whimsy of their own. Besides the stories there are many quaint verses, each pointed with a shrewd and comic moral, and bubbling with so genuine a humor that all children from seven to seventy will chuckle over them and want to memorize them to quote to their friends.
The illustrations, drawn by one of the greatest illustrators who ever lived— the author himself—are both rollicking and lovely, and perfectly complete this gay and clever and altogether delightful book.

From the dust jacket of the 1913 Harper & Brothers edition
