The Old Stories

by Rosalind Kerven



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Storyteller Rosalind Kerven brings British and Irish folklore heritage vividly to life through 25 tales of faery royalty, mischievous goblins, helpful house elves, changelings, and enchantment.  
Faeries, elves, goblins, leprechauns, brownies, spriggans, and other supernatural beings leap off the page in this collection of mystical stories. Along with fascinating quotes drawn from medieval manuscripts and oral folklore, enchanting illustrations from favorite artists (including Arthur Rackham) capture the enduring appeal of folklore and magic. Each story, from “The Faery Borrower” to “The Leprechaun’s Trick,” is associated with a particular region, and accompanied by spotlight features and detailed background notes.

Rosalind Kerven is the author of some 60 books with co-editions and translations in 21 countries. Her bestselling titles include King Arthur (Dorling Kindersley), Earth Magic, Sky Magic (Native American stories), The Giant King (Norse Myths), Enchanted Kingdoms (Cetlic myths), and English Fairy Tales and Legends, also for the National Trust. She lives in the Northumberland National Park.
