Sussex Folk Tales for Children, Paperback Book

Sussex Folk Tales for Children Paperback

Illustrated by Sherry Robinson


Come with storytellers Xanthe and Robin on a journey throughout Sussex and meet some of the strange and magical creatures that live here.

Did you know that if you're walking the cliff tops you may spot a fiery-eyed stranger? Or that if you're dancing in the forest and hear a singing in the wind, it must be fairies? Or that if you're swimming in the sea and feel a tendril winding around your ankle, it's not seaweed but the hair of a mermaid who wants you to swim with her until the stones turn to sand. These tales - specially chosen to be enjoyed by 7-11 year old readers - sparkle with magic and explode with adventure.

Not only will children love to read them, or listen to them being read, these stories will also stimulate an interest in the county, and help children engage with their own surroundings.
