Reprint. Originally published: as British folk tales. London: Orchard, 1987.
Reissue of a much-praised classic, first published as British Folk Tales. The most comprehensive collection on the market. Beautiful package.

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.
