fairy tale (pronounced /ˈfeəriˌteɪl/) is a type of short story that typically features folkloric fantasy characters, such as dwarves, elves, fairies, giants, gnomes, goblins, mermaids, trolls, or witches, and usually magic or enchantments.

FairyTales.top is our effort to create a mobile-first, reader optimized website where visitors may enjoy classic fairy tales, fables and stories, comment them, as well as publish their own stories for others to read. Our tales are mostly text-based but we are enrich them with photos and videos (where possible). There is also support to listen each story (as in an audiobook) by using modern HTML5 Text-to-Speech technology (powered by ResponsiveVoice).

Text-to-Speech support is provided by the awesome third-party platform, ResponsiveVoice, which we also gratefully thank for their great tools.
