Fairy stories are always delightful; but they gain an additional interest when they bear the stamp of the people among whom they circulated. This is certainly the case in Miss Grierson's book. Some, of course, are of the type common to most countries, but the majority are essentially Scottish. The writer has drawn them from all sources, folk-lore, minstrelsy, and legend. And many less well known will soon be popular among children all over the world. Scottish fairy tales find adventures that will not leave anyone indifferent. It is the tale about a man who worked in the fields, and had a wife, and a son, and a daughter. One day he caught a hare, and took it home to his wife, and asked her to cook it for his dinner. While she was cooking she tasted and tasted a hare, till she had ate it, and she did not know what to offer her husband for dinner. Will the husband be hungry or she feed him? Read the tale to find out.
