Bedtime Stories: The Flying Trunk


I love reading to my kids. I know some parents do not have the time to read to their children, or have problems reading. So I am offering bedtime stories, all for free.

This story is The Flying Trunk from
THE PINK FAIRY BOOK Edited by Andrew Lang

The story is of a merchant’s son who frivolously spends all his money, gets a flying trunk as a present, finds a princess in a tower, convinces her parents to let him marry her, then loses the trunk and can’t marry her. The nice thing is that this story has no killing or death, however if there is a moral it is too deep for my simple mind.

This fairy tale is Rated G

You can read the book yourself for free at
Project Gutenberg Pink Fairy
