Book Description

1892. Over a century ago, Jacobs collected and adapted many tales in his lifetime and made contributions to the field of fairy tale studies. This is one of the most popular of his collections. Early variations of well-known tales are included such as Cinderella, Three Little Pigs, Three Bears, and Tom Tit Tot. Along with the classics there are lesser-known tales full of suspense, action, ghosts, magic, wicked stepmothers, love lost, imps, and fairies. With some of these tales you can't be sure there will be a happy-ever-after ending.

J'avoue avoir été très déçue, voire même affligée par les contes présentés dans ce livre. J'ai voulu persévérer et j'en ai lu la moitié, mais ensuite j'ai abandonné... Maintenant, les goûts des uns et des autres ne sont pas identiques et je serais curieuse d'avoir l'avis d'autres lecteurs.

These stories were written in a rough tone and have an unpolished feel to them. This is not necessarily a detraction, and some tales were better than other, but it was occasionally wearying to read them in the poor grammar of colloquial speech. Hence, four stars. Also, it lacks an interactive table of contents.

Tales included are;

Tom Tit Tot
The Three Sillies
The Rose-Tree
The Old Woman and Her Pig
How Jack Went to Seek His Fortune
Mr. Vinegar
Nix Nought Nothing
Jack Hannaford
Mouse and Mouser

The Story of the Three Bears
Jack the Giant-Killer

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Joseph Jacob's Tales 7 septembre 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur

First let me say that this book is by Joseph Jacobs, while John Batten is the illustrator--which is useless in the kindle version, since there are no illustrations at all. I'm not sure why the error exists, since the book itself has the correct author on the first page.

Anyway, this is a solid book of fairy tales (English ones, fancy that). Some of the stories are depressing or weird, but most of them are pretty typical fairy tales or folk tales (being either of princes and princesses or of really stupid peasants, respectively). I'd suggest reading through the book at least once before sharing it with children, because a few of the tales (like the one with the beautiful dead children) are probably ones you want to think hard about before subjecting your kids to them. Stories may also contain misogyny, bad role models, really stupid people, violence, and/or religious themes--but that's just how these sorts of fairy tales are, honestly.

I already mentioned that there are no illustrations, but the captions are still present and occasionally slightly confusing.

Contains the following stories:

The Pied Piper of Franchville
The Golden Ball
My Own Self
The Black Bull of Norroway
Yallery Brown
Three Feathers
Sir Gammer Vans
Tom Hickathrift
The Hedley Kow
Gobborn Seer
The Wee Bannock
Johnny Gloke
Coat O'Clay
The Three Cows
The Blinded Giant
The Pedlar of Swaffham
The Old Witch

The Hobyahs
A Pottle O'Brains
The King of England and His Three Sons
King John and the Abbot of Canterbury
Rushen Coatie
The King O'the Cats
The Stars in the Sky
Puddock, Mousie and Ratton
The Little Bull-Calf
The Wee, Wee Mannie
Habetrot and Scantlie Mab
Old Mother Wiggle-Waggle
Stupid's Cries
The Lambton Worm
The Wise Men of Gotham (sadly, not about Batman)
The Princess of Canterbury

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Collected by Joseph Jacobs 7 février 2010
Par Mariana Chaffee - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is, in fact, the collection of stories that Joseph Jacobs collected in the late 19th or early 20th century, inspired by the work of the Brothers Grimm. Jacobs traveled throughout the countryside of England, Scotland, and Ireland, and he wrote the stories down as much as possible in the language in which they were told to him -- old fashioned folklore collection. These collections used to be available in Dover Editions, although I don't know if they are still. (Do Dover books ever go out of print???) The table of contents is not navigable, which could be a nuisance, but free is a good price. You could try constructing your own "table of contents" using bookmarks or highlights....

The stories are enjoyable, and fun to read aloud to kids. I'd give it 5 stars if the table of contents were navigable, take off 2 for the nuisance factor, add one because it's free. Four seems fair.

In my review, I'm more comparing how this book meets my expectations based on what I have read from the more well known fairy tale compilers like the Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Anderson. Some of these English fairy tales are very familiar, but they are not always quite how I know them.

The first impression I had was that this book is more varied in terms of 'fairy tales'. There are a lot of folk tales, and silly children's stories that don't have any moral or resolution really ("Master of all Masters springs to mind, as a short tale that seems to have the point of reciting silly words). There is also a fixation on the name Jack for a lot of these characters. I just thought that was interesting. I wonder if they are all the same person. There is also references to King Arthur and his court which I found very fascinating because some of these tales seem grounded in realistic detail. They mention Kings who reigned and real locations in England as having seen the events in the story. It makes the tales a little less fantastical, even when there are giants roaming the English countryside.

Probably the tale that most surprised me was the story of Dick Whittington which now I realize I confused with the French "Puss in Boots" fairy tale. Dick Whittington's story is much less magical, and more about being lucky enough to have a very industrious cat who likes to hunt mice. "Mr. Fox" kind of stood out to me for its implied romance, gruesomeness, and the confrontation by the heroine. There are not too many stories in this book that are the same ilk. And lastly a story that I was surprised to see included was "The Golden Arm" which I was always more familiar with as a ghost story. But now I know it is definitely a very old one.

With the more realistic settings, sometimes whimsical nature of a few tales, and the English slang that is used at times, this book of fairy tales is rather different from what I'm used to. I find it very interesting to read the original of familiar tales and see how things have changed. For instance "The Story of the Three Bears" is more familiar to readers as "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." In the original story there is no Goldilocks - rather the intruder is a very disagreeable old woman. This book is definitely worth a read, for something different than the usual stories and perhaps to find some new favorite fairy tales.
