Stories from Penningdon

  • Stories from Penningdon is a collection of obscure fairy tales which contain morals for the edification of its readers. Human, Elf, Dward, and even Goblin readers will enjoy these tales of adventure and romance, as our heroes and heroines fight adversity, solve problems, and defeat the evil Ogres. "Virtue" is rewarded, and, in the end, the "good guys" always win.

    Stories from Pentamerone is a collection that was compiled by Basile in 1634 and 1636. These are the stories from which many modern-day fairy tales-such as Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, and others-originate. In addition, this book also includes many tales that may not be familiar to the general public.
