      notes on maori folk-tales of the fairy people. BY JAMES COWAN. PATU-PAIAREHE is the name applied by the Maori to the mysterious forest-dwelling race who, for want of a more exact term, may be described as the fairies of New Zealand. In addition, some books on fairy tales from other parts of the world have also just been added such as: Welsh fairy-tales and other stories collected and edited by P.H. Emerson (); Chinese fairy tales told in English by Herbert A. Giles () and Fairy folk tales of the Maori by James Cowan ().

      Just about everyone is familiar with folk and fairy tales. Children learn about them from parents, teachers, and other adults, while researchers study these tales at colleges and universities. At the same time, folk and fairy tales are inseparable from everyday life and popular culture. Movies, music, art, and literature offer imaginative retellings and interpretations of fairy and folk tales/5(3). - Explore poyenlee10's board "Fairy tales, folktales (Australia, New Zealand and Oceania)", followed by people on Pinterest.
