Kevin Crossley-Holland is a master storyteller and winner of the Carnegie Medal. In 'Between Worlds: Folktales of Britain and Ireland', he retells fifty ancient tales of magic, wonder, love, legend, and adventure - each set against backdrops both dark and humorous, and featuring a cast of ghosts, changelings, pedlars, fairies, and dragons. These are folk tales told in a way that brings an ancient past back to life and makes it real.
Each story is illustrated with wonderful black and white illustrations from Frances Castle. The creatures, objects, and landscapes depicted sit perfectly against the tone of these tales and help create a title that feels like the well-thumbed and much loved storybooks of your childhood.
