These magical stories contain some of the best things ever written in the realm of fairy tales. Included are the "Cathood of Maurice", the story of Kenneth, who is turned into a fish and has to be caught before he can transform back into a boy; and of Amabel, who opens the wardrobe and discovers inside an enormous railway station. There are also stories set in fairy tale lands inhabited by kings and queens, princes and princesses who have to outwit wicked fairies and evil magicians. A favorite is the tale of Princess Belinda, who was condemned to be ugly during the week and beautiful on Sundays.

Simply great stories
E. Nesbit can always be relied upon to tell a great story and this collection of her short stories is no exception. Johanna Ward does a lovely job narrating with feeling and a very appropriate accent. The stories are fun and familiar-feeling, but wholly original and entirely enjoyable. There isn't a single one that I didn't enjoy. I'm extremely happy with this purchase and will enjoy it over and over again. It's a great listen for family car rides --- there is something for EVERYONE to enjoy, no matter what age they may be.
