The Magpie's Nest : A Treasury of Folk Tales about Birds Hardback

Illustrated by Becca Hall


From crowded train stations to quiet woods, and from city centres to our own back gardens, birds remind us that nature is everywhere.

As children we are fascinated by these magical flying creatures that live amongst us, and as adults we have a fondness for our feathered friends.

Numerous books about different habitats and markings exists to help us find and identify birds, but for the first time one of Britain's finest storytellers has gathered together the best folk tales about birds. Suitable for all ages and charmingly illustrated by Lakeland artist Becca Hall, this is an essential collection of stories for all who love the natural world.
