Language. Emerson tells the fairy tales in modern literary prose, so it is not difficult reading.
Story Length. The stories in this unit are mostly single-page stories, with a few stories that are two pages in length.
Choosing Between Units. This book of Welsh stories contains stories that are still quite close to the oral storytelling tradition, more like folktales than the literary fairy tales in the Welsh unit by Thomas.
