Written and Illustrated by Leonie Grey.
'This lively collection of stories will take young readers on an adventure through the lands of Devon, weaving the most ancient myth, lore and lively local tales through to a contemporary sense of place, landscape, and connection. A book of wonder and magic - goblins tinkering in the old ore mines, a changeling hare-woman running by the light of the moon, and pixies playing on the old pack routes trodden by the feet of Dartmoor ponies. A rich heritage of folktales and lore braided with the magical fields, moors, and coastline of Devon, and where old place names, such as 'Black Dog' and 'Fairy Cross', are signs along the way to a treasure trove of story.'
This book is woven with an important contemporary sense of place in the world, connection with landscape, and written with a keen eye towards supporting literacy and a love of reading for children.
‘Folktales from Devon for Children' is due to be published by the History Press in October 2018.
