My first review!

”This is a brilliant book full of mischief, magic and mayhem. I loved learning more about Shropshire and it was nice to knowing where the stories were set. It was a lively mix of songs, games and most of all Shropshire stories. I highly recommend this book, it is great to have on your book shelf.” Gertie Aged 10

shropshire folk tales for children book cover

This is a children’s book. But it is for real children. It is a book of buried treasure, people-eating giants, sleeping kings and a monster fish. There’s fire, wee, milk and missing body parts. It’s a book that’s got the bits adults don’t like left in. These are stories of Shropshire. They are old and wild, like the land itself. If you like giants having their heads lopped off, girls who won’t do what they’re told, knights fighting with lances, one-armed ghosts and grumpy witches, then this is the book for you.
