The Firelight Fairy Book - Henry Beston

This book has very imaginative and charming short Fairy Tales. Prince Sneeze is the story of a price who has a curse that something bad will happen every time he sneezes. Marianna is the story of the magical adventures of a young girl. The Enchanted Elm is the story of a prince who is turned into a tree. This story reminds you of the walking and talking trees in the Lorg Of the Rings.

'The Lost Half-hour' is the story of a simpleton who goes in search of a lost half hour. Along the way he also looks for a Knight's lost temper and an old man's lost reputation. He ends up working for Father time and his sons: the hours of the day.

These and the other stories are available for free courtesy of Project Gutenberg :
