About This Book

When you are in Somerset you are never far from mysterious caverns, whispering woods, hidden valleys and places which can’t decide whether they are seascapes or landscapes. The ancient Kings Arthur and Alfred hid amongst Somerset’s secret waterways, waging the wars and making treaties that forged Britain’s history. Outlaws and highwaymen lived on the wildest of moors that plummet into the sea. Ordinary people farmed the land and fished the waters alongside the Little People, the Fair Folk, the fairies and goblins that were as tricksy and unchancy to meet as any smuggler… In this collection, professional storyteller Sharon Jacksties has selected and reworked tales for children aged 7–11 to discover.
