Here they are again, the old, old stories, the very best; dear Cinderella, wicked old Bluebeard, tiny Thumbling, beautiful Beauty and the ugly Beast, and a host of others. But the old stories, I may tell you, are always new, and always must be so, because there are new children to read them every day, and to these, of course, these old tales might have been written yesterday. . . .
Surely we are favored in this generation when we see before us, the old, old fairy tales, which are ever new, dressed in such a beautiful and splendid fashion!
