American Fairy Tales is a book by American author L. Frank Baum, first published in 1901. It contains twelve fantasy stories for children including: The Box of Robbers; The Glass Dog; The Queen of Quok; The Girl Who Owned a Bear; The Enchanted Types; The Laughing Hippopotamus; The Magic Bon Bons; The Capture of Father Time; The Wonderful Pump; The Dummy That Lived; The King of the Polar Bears; and, The Mandarin and the Butterfly. They were originally published in five newspapers between March and May 1901, with the book being published in October. More satirical and tongue-in-cheek than is usual for children's stories, the fact that they were first printed in newspapers shows that they were meant for adult readers as well.
This book has 31,808 words, 61 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1901.
