We are FairyTalez. We love fairy tales – no surprise – that is why we dedicated our website, two apps, and several books to these wonderful tales! Fairytalez.com is now the largest collection of online fairy tales, folk tales, and fables. We are constantly looking for classic stories to add to our library, so send us a note if you know a good fairy tale we are missing. We scour the archives for great tales and share them not only here, but also in our books and audiobook apps. Learn more about our apps, or visit our Amazon page to see our ebooks and paperbacks.
Do you write your own fairy tales or folk tales? Share them with readers all over the world now! Log in or sign up to use our self-publishing feature to receive feedback, enter writing contests, and more here at Fairytalez.com! Our story collections originate from all over the world, and we, too are based all over the world, as shown here.
The site was originally founded in the Kingdom of Denmark in Europe (actually we have a queen and a democracy, but it is still called a Kingdom). This is the country where Hans Christian Andersen and Nordic Mythology came from, and on the map, it is pictured as the tiny peninsula just below our Little Mermaid.
Nowadays most of our stories are actually being researched and published from the US. The city has strong German heritage, and you can see a glockenspiel homage to the Pied Piper and the Brothers Grimm from Germany in our parks. We have a lot of American folktales too of course, such as Native American folktales or folklore stories of America’s various regions collected by Charles Skinner.
The site is being developed in Pakistan, the land of Diamond Cut Diamond from our collection of Pakistani Fairy tales. The design of the site stems from Bulgaria, situated on the map just below the golden Lamia (a malicious Bulgarian dragon-like creature). You can read tales from all of the regions we have mentioned above, plus many, many more at Fairytalez.
We would like to thank our narrators Phil Chenevert, Jason Sullivan, Claire Staniforth, and many others. Librivox has been the source of multiple recordings, and we appreciate their commitment to making audiobooks of various titles in the public domain. Our audio engineer is Kristina Markovic.
