Between Worlds: Folktales of Britain and Ireland
author: Kevin Crossley-Holland
illustrator: Frances Castle
A handsome, cocky young man is swept up by a dark horseman and cast into a life-or-death adventure. A pair of green children emerge from a remote hollow and struggle to adapt to a strange new land. A dauntless farm girl finds that her fearlessness earns her a surprising reward. Dark but often funny, lyrical yet earthy, the folktales presented here have influenced our landscape and culture. This definitive collection of forty-eight stories, retold by master storyteller and poet Kevin Crossley-Holland, opens a doorway to a lost world and shows the enduring power of language and imagination.
Ancient, rich, and strange, these magical and eerie tales from across Britain and Ireland have been passed down from generation to generation.
