The snowflake fairies tell their stories in verse: of a poor Swiss mountain boy whose old dog is sold to an English lady traveller, of a foundling raised by an old fishing couple, who turns out to be a prince,  of a very ill child who worries about the birds she can no longer feed, of Don Jose, who lost all his wealth but treasured his mule Jacintha,of a poor young seamstress in London who saves to buy a lark and then frees it.  Children must have loved this book! Very fine blocks by Browne, all in verse, the work of a minor romantic Victorian poet (1836 - 1919). NOTE: THIS BOOK HAS BEEN SOLD.
