Free Shipping!


"Why the Chimes Rang" by is a collection of highly imaginative modern fairy tales which inspire children to correct behavior.

Written by Raymond Macdonald Alden, this classic includes two Christmas stories--"Why the Chimes Rang" and "In the Great Walled Country," plus a variety of other stories.  Beautiful illustrations all thru out by Evelyn Copelman.


This vintage book is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. Please note the wear on the dust jacket; also the previous owner signed this book as a gift. The book itself has no stains; all pages are firmly in place. Scroll in and view photos. 

I have found in this book, a school book report by the owner on this book and a youth magazine Read Magazine from March 1954. Read Magazine is full of compelling articles and cartoons for young people.

Please use pictures as a guide. Have any questions or need more photos, ask.

"Why the Chimes Rang" is an excellent addition to your vintage Christmas tradition or children's book collection.
