About the Book

These stories, which delighted and frightened us during the long winter evenings, were told by our grandparents to keep us quiet around the fireplace, where a big crackling log was burning and warming us up, letting our imagination run away with the unforgettable and mysterious personages, which led our childhood. This book is very simple and interesting and suitable for people any age. Among many mysterious characters, the most principal ones are Mr. Highness who served the Majesty as a grenadier and Donna Celeste who was a fortune–teller, healer and had paranormal power.
