This enchanting collection of traditional English folktales reflects the depth and diversity of the folk heritage of Britain, and illustrates the ties between stories, land, and people. The editors present an enticing assortment of more than 50 tales, gathered from practicing storytellers and organized into sections based on broad themes—The Fool in All His Glory, Wily Wagers and Tall Tales, Holy Days and Days of Heroes, and so forth. There's a story for every listener—from Teeny Tiny and The Pixies' Beds for young children to spooky ghost stories and witch tales, such as Wild Edric and Jenny Greenteeth for older readers and listeners. For each tale, the authors cite a region of origin. Like other titles in the series, the book contains background information: notes on the tales, a brief history of England, a map, photographs, a glossary, and a bibliography of sources. Brief biographies of the tellers are also included. All of these elements combine to form an apt resource for read-alouds and programs, an indispensable source for storytellers, and a great research tool for students. All grade levels.
