The following are stories from the book “Once Upon A Time: Children’s Stories From The Classics” (1920?) by Blanche Winder (1866-1930).
The stories in this book are all derived from the beautiful literature of ancient Greece and Rome. Just as they have inspired the finest poetry and painting of the world, so they cannot fail to delight any child who loves a tale about princes and princesses, enchanted forests, sparkling water nymphs, scaly dragons, stags with golden hoofs, and horses with silver wings. Never was there a finer fairy palace than that which sheltered Psyche, never were there seas so marvelous as those Ulysses sailed “once upon a time”.
