On the borders of the “Land o’ Dreams” and broad daylight, the real and the unreal are so strangely blended that children are puzzled to know where the boundary lies.Somewhere in that land is a room. And that room was all full of twilight; but there they sat, every one of them. I did not count them, but there were ever so many - Aladdin, Ali Baba, Fortunatis, Jack-the-Giant-Killer, Doctor Faustus, Bidpai, Cinderella, Patient Grizzle, the Soldier who cheated the Devil, St. George, Hans in Luck; and there was Sindbad the Sailor, and the Tailor who killed seven flies at a blow, as well. Alongside him was the Fisherman who fished up the Genie, the Lad who fiddled for the Jew, the Blacksmith who made Death sit in his apple-tree, and Boots, who always marries the Princess, whether he wants to or not—a rag-tag lot as ever you saw in your life, gathered from the four corners of the world, blown here by the Four Mighty Winds, brought together in Twilight Land. Each one of them had a story to tell…….In this collection of 16 enchanting tales, Howard Pyle intertwines each story with the next, crafting a unified world filled with princes and demons, genies and sorceresses, and all the characters that pitch in to wage the age-old battle between good and evil.The 16 tales told by these giants of Twilight Land are:The Stool Of Fortune The Talisman Of Solomon Ill-Luck And The Fiddler Empty Bottles Good Gifts And A Fool’s Folly The Good Of A Few Words Woman’s Wit A Piece Of Good Luck The Fruit Of Happiness Not A Pin To Choose Much Shall Have More And Little Shall Have Less Wisdom’s Wages And Folly’s Pay The Enchanted Island All Things Are As Fate Wills Where To Lay The Blame The Salt Of Life What is Twilight Land? It is a wonderful, wonderful place where no sun shines to scorch your back as you jog along the way, where no rain falls to make the road muddy and hard to travel, where no wind blows the dust into your eyes or the chill into your marrow. Where all is sweet and quiet and ready to go to bed.Where is Twilight Land? Ah! that I cannot tell you. You will either have to ask your mother or find it for yourself.We invite you to curl up with this unique sliver of Fairy culture not seen in print for many-a-year; and immerse yourself in the tales and fables of yesteryear.----------------------------TAGS: Twilight Land, fairy tales, folklore, myths, legends, children’s stories, children’s stories, bygone era, fairydom, fairy land, classic stories, children’s bedtime stories, stool of fortune, talisman of Solomon, ill-luck, fiddler, empty bottles, good gifts, fool’s folly, good of a few words, woman’s wit, piece of good luck, fruit of happiness, pin, choose, much shall have more, little shall have less, wisdom’s wages, folly’s pay, enchanted island, fate, will, blame, salt of life
