Children's folk tales from Cornwall especially selected by a professional storyteller. Join Jamie, the son of a travelling Droll-Teller, as he journeys across Cornwall, a land steeped in myth and legend. Along the way we will hear twenty tales specially chosen to be enjoyed by 7-11 year old readers which sparkle with magic and explode with adventure. Some of these stories are strange and sad, some are a bit scary and some are a bit mad. Maybe it's wrong to try and trap them in a book. Maybe you should set them free and tell them. Our ancestors liked them, that is why they passed them down to us. Read them, tell them and pass them on! As old as the moors and as wild as the sea, these tales are freshly re-told for today's readers by Cornish storyteller Mike O'Connor. AUTHOR: Mike O'Connor is a respected professional musician and storyteller who performs at folk, literary and storytelling festivals across the country. An adviser on the musical score and fiddle player for the BBC's series of Poldark, Mike has been awarded the OBE and has been made a bard of Gorsedh of Kernow, which exists to maintain the national Celtic spirit of Cornwall through literature, art, music and history. He is the author of Cornish Folk Tales and has also produced many storytelling CDs. He lives in Wadebridge, Cornwall. 30 b/w illustrations
