More English Fairy Tales - Joseph Jacobs
Click on this. It is beautiful.

I was looking for a neat little traditional poem that Wordsworth mentioned, and Google gave me this extremely lively mix of familiar and less-familiar. Jacobs does an excellent job of finding good stories and retelling them in his own voice, which is a lot more engaging and readable than other books like this can be.
