The English Fairy Tales collection is a remarkable treasure, a work that contains the best-loved tales of your childhood! This volume seeks to reclaim the powerful cultural legacy, presenting exciting stories and providing the historical contexts that reveal the mysteries of the fairy tales! In Habentrot and Scantlie Mab the story goes about the woman who had a daughter. The girl loved play more than work, walks in grasslands and lanes more than the spinning-wheel and distaff. The mother was strongly angry at this behavior, for in those days no girl had any chance of a good husband unless she was a skillful spinster. So one day the mother gave her seven heads of lint, saying she would take no excuse - they must be returned in three days spun into yarn. Try this exciting fairy tale and learn how the girl could cope with the task!
