"This girdle, lords," said she, "is made for the most part of mine own hair, which, which when I was yet in the world, i loved full well."



The giant sat at supper, gnawing on a limb of a man, and baking his huge frame by the fire.



At last the strange knight smote him to the earth, and gave him such a buffet on the helm as well-nigh killed him.

Re: We had The Children's Classics, illustrated by N. C. Wyeth:

Those are the exact images I remember so well -- again, from the Readville branch library. Before the coming of television, we spent a lot of free time at the library on rainy days, winter days, and also during the hottest part of the summer days. Reading was part of normal living, not merely a hobby.
