The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. In simple, direct language that conjures up the earthy magic of age-old tales from all over the British Isles (some familiar, some less so) Garner casts his customary spell over all-comers. A valuable collection, excellently presented and illustrated in colour and line.
