The magic lands : folk tales of Britain and Ireland
A magnificent book of 55 folk, fairy and ghost stories from all over Britain and Ireland. Taken from original sources and then brilliantly retold in a fresh and modern way, this is the most comprehensive and authoritative collection written in the last twenty years.
A handsome trade paperback with notes and sources. Each story has a beautiful opening illustration by Emma Chichester Clark, a major illustrator.
First published by Orchard Books as BRITISH FOLK TALES, it attracted rave reviews: 'outstanding' Naomi Lewis in The Observer 'a sourcebook of folklore no home with children should be without' The Independent
