Hampshire Folk Tales for Children by Michael O'Leary

If you love magic and adventure, here is the book for you. In this treasure trove of tales, storyteller Michael O' Leary has collected stories from the Hampshire Downs (which are up), the New Forest (which is old), the copses and coppices, fields and farms, villages, towns and cities of Hampshire. In these stories you will meet dragons, giants, knights, princesses and some vile Vikings- and of course the Liphook fairies. From `Once upon a time...' to `Happy ever after' you will be transported to Hampshire, where even the stones have stories to tell.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
