collected by Berlie Doherty
illustrated by Juan Wijngaard

10 stories from many cultures:
Africa, Australia, British Isles, Canada & southern United States

The tales are of strange & wonderful happenings: people fly, a hare grants a wish, a child is found in a seashell & fruits become precious jewels

All have the power to enchant


Haunting illustrations complement the text beautifully. The stories are amazing, beautiful & well written

Definitely a classic

Some unique folktales I haven't seen anywhere else. Great mix of old stories from around the world

The illustrations catch the mood of each tale & bring an extra dimension to the magic

Illustrated with unusual power, the images are haunting & inspired
Some have very good lessons for children (such as beauty only being skin deep etc)

Each story is different in setting, tone & mood, yet share common elements - longing, danger, heartbreak, joy, romance & mystery

Great read aloud for the whole family. I read this to my 7 & 10 year old daughters & we couldn't put it down. The illustrations are beautiful art quality drawings & the stories timeless

Banners' motifs symbolise the tales, enclose the text & contribute to the feel of an illuminated manuscript
