Hayden  (littlemisshayden) | 7 comments It was paperback, with the title (Myths and legends stories on something like that?)on the left, with a dead tree on the front or something? It had stories inside and one of them was about a bird and a statue... the bird died I think. I read it about 2008. It was a longish book (400 pages maybe??). PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

Ruby Hollyberry | 30 comments Or Tanglewood Tales A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys by Nathaniel Hawthorne ? It is Hawthorne's collection of Greek myths for young people.

Hayden  (littlemisshayden) | 7 comments No, :( I think the happy prince was a story in it, but there were others in the book as well. Thanks for your help guys :)

Valerie (veegood) | 205 comments Maybe The Happy Prince and Other Fairy Tales ? There have been lots of editions, one might have had the cover you remember. Do you remember any of the other stories?


message 6: by Hayden (new)

Hayden  (littlemisshayden) | 7 comments No :( *headwall* Thanks for your help though. I seem to remember a little paragraph in italics at the beginning of each story though.

Hayden  (littlemisshayden) | 7 comments No :( *double headwall* Thanks sooo much for looking again :) There was only one dead tree, and no houses.

Jak (blindjak) | 10 comments When you say myths and legends is the Greek/Roman mythology or is it more fairy tales & fables?

or is it Norse? Chinese/Japanese/Thai?


message 15: by Hayden (new)

Hayden  (littlemisshayden) | 7 comments Its more fairytales and fables I think. The book's part of a series with similar covers. I think some other titles are - Fantasy stories, horror stories, mystery stories e.t.c If you could find one of them it'll be easier to find the book I'm looking for!

Mel (sea0tter12) | 38 comments There were the Childcraft encyclopedias, and one of them was about fairytales and fables, and one was about myths, etc. I remember hardcover, but it's possible they've released them again.

I kept looking for ones with a dead tree on it and only found these 2.
I hope it's one of these T.T

The bird and the statue reminds of the Oscar Wilde story The Happy Prince and Other Tales so maybe an an anthology included it?

Tab (tabbrown) | 5054 comments Were the stories by different authors or the same author? Do you remember any other stories in the book?

Post any details, no matter how small.
