The Lovereading4Kids comment
Vivid in their sense of place and taken from the rugged highlands and islands to the tamer border country, telling of mighty heroes, great warriors as well as witches and wizards, these stories are drawn from long, long ago. As a country with so much of a coast line, it is no surprise that the mystery and danger of the sea is a recurrent theme in stories of seal folk and water sprites. But there are stories of magic and trickery on land, too and, behind them all, a sense of the power of the landscape and the dangers that lie within it.
There are 'Stories from' books covering the whole of the British Isles. Click on the one you are interested in finding out more about.
