Where Dragons Soar: And Other Animal Folk Tales of the British Isles, Paperback / softback Book

Where Dragons Soar: And Other Animal Folk Tales of the British Isles Paperback / softback


Within these pages are tales of scheming creatures and ferocious animals from across the British Isles, passed down through the generations.

Amongst the more famous beasts of myth and legend, such as the Loch Ness monster lurking in Scotland's black waters and the Hartlepool monkey that was mistaken for a French spy, are the less well-known stories of the peculiar, fantastical and extraordinary.

Discover the fox Scrapefoot and his run-in with bears, the fisherman's wife who was really a seal, and the two warring dragons hidden under Caernarfon - all brought to life by noted storyteller Pete Castle. Illustrated with unique drawings, these enchanting tales will appeal to young and old, and can be enjoyed by readers time and again.
