From the Back Cover:

A rich and varied collection of twenty-one fairy tales chosen from all regions of Britain. Originally narrated round the fireside these tales have a powerful immediacy, and Alan Garner has been faithful to their oral traditions. He has selected the stories for their strength and imagery and they are ideal for reading aloud.

Some of the tales, Mally Whuppy, Tom Tit Tot, Kate Crackernuts, may already be familiar, but most will be a new experience as they are not to be found in the usual collections. All are full of life and vigour.

Derek Collard has cut a title page illustration for every story. These have a richness that matches the texts and the result is a beautiful book, a book to give and a book to keep.

About the Author:

Alan Garner was born and still lives in Cheshire, an area which has had a profound effect on his writing and provided the seed of many ideas worked out in his books.

His fourth book, ‘The Owl Service’ brought Alan Garner to everyone’s attention. It won two important literary prizes – The Guardian Award and the Carnegie Medal – and was made into a serial by Granada Television. It has established itself as a classic and Alan Garner as a writer of great distinction.
