Faeries, Elves and Goblins : The Old Stories and Fairy Tales, Hardback

Faeries, Elves and Goblins : The Old Stories and Fairy Tales Hardback



Faeries, elves, goblins, leprechauns, brownies, spriggans and many other supernatural beings leap vividly off the page in this collection of 25 haunting stories and folklore from the rich narrative heritage of Britain and Ireland, including authentic historical material dating from Anglo-Saxon times, the early Middle Ages and the 17th Century.

Marvel over ancient spells to summon faeries to your house, tremble at the shapeshifting powers of dangerous faery queens, lose yourself amongst the illusions of Faeryland and learn how to protect family members from the terrors of faery abduction.

Interspersed with facts on faery folklore, these tales cover faery morals, elvish misdemeanours, the spells cast by goblins and the sightings of the creatures, as well as their dealings with mortals.

With charming illustrations from favourite illustrators throughout, including Arthur Rackham, this book reminds us of the enduring appeal of folklore and mystery for all generations.
