The Animal Story Book, a collection of short stories about animals edited by Andrew Lang, is today’s Free eBook of the Day.
Here is an excerpt from the preface: “After offering, then, so many Fairy Books (though the stories are not all told yet), we now present you (in return for a coin or two) with a book about the friends of children and of fairies–the beasts. The stories are all true, more or less, but it is possible that Monsieur Dumas and Monsieur Théophile Gautier rather improved upon their tales. I own that I have my doubts about the bears and serpents in the tales by the Baron Wogan.”
