Synopsis

Winter's Tales Stories of Winter from Around the World by Lari Don

A selection of folk tales about winter from all around the world. Find out how spiders invented tinsel, what happened when the spring girl beat the hag of winter, why snow is eagles' feathers, and how a hero with hairy trousers used ice to kill a dragon. Stories from the Americas, Asia, Scandinavia and Europe make this a wonderfully inclusive anthology of the chilliest of tales, stunningly illustrated in papercut style.

Reviews

this is a book that will entertain even the most reluctant reader. Irish Examiner This extraordinary and magical collection little-known folktales is beautifully illustrated in paper-cut style and perfect for dipping into on autumnal evenings and winter's nights. Springboard Stories Reading and writing folk tales is a valuable exercise for any young writer and this collection...is a masterclass in the genre...we are simply treated to classic plots economically and tantalisingly told. -- Helen Mulley Teach Primary The language is simple so suitable for good readers of 10+, but the tales are complex enough to be enjoyed by young adults School Librarian
