Compulsive Colour Addiction

Following on from my last feast of fairytales, I’ve dug out all my lovely old and battered copies of Andrew Lang’s Coloured Fairy Books. If you have never read one of Lang’s collections, you’re in for a treat – he writes so elegantly and the collection is so diverse, you can never get sick of them. They are compulsive reading for all lovers of fairy tales.

I wish I owned the complete collection. I have most of them but never managed to get my hands on The Yellow Fairy Book, which is ironic as it’s my favourite colour. Nothing makes me feel as covetous as a beautiful book.
