Folklore and Fairytales on the Web

The Web is a rich source of folklore and fairy tales from around the world. If you’re ever sitting around, wondering if the story of “The Little Tin Soldier” will still bring a tear to your eye, or just how much you and “The Princess and The Pea” have in common, you might want to check one of these sites:

Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales and Stories, here.


Grimm’s Fairy Tales, here.


Complete Blue Fairy Book

Complete Red Fairy Book

Complete Guide to Snow White (text, illustrations, issues, criticisms, illustrations, teaching guides)


Subject Guide to Folklore from Around the World (excellent resource!), here.

Aesop’s Fables here.

Finally, there is a collection of links to many other resources here.
