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.
