Russian Fairytales in Russian?


I am looking for a website or pdf (something free!), which has Russian fairytales written in Russian. It's easy to get the English translations of Russian fairytales but finding them in Russian is a whole other story.

I'm looking specifically for the fairytales written by Alexander Afanasyev. The reason why I'm looking for them is because I'm making a pdf book myself teaching how to read and write the Russian alphabet, and fairytales would be good for the reading section. I might make this book free for everyone if people are interested.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Would add that ebay is a good place to find russian books that aren't available via the usual american channels. I got a really pretty edition of Pushkin's fairy tales from a seller in moscow for a reasonable price. Lots of other stuff there too.

you should know that fairy tales in particular have outdated and irrelevant vocabulary.
