About This Book

Where can you walk on a dragon’s backbone? Why did giants Wade and Bell lay roads in the North York Moors, and is it safe to offer a gift to a small-toothed dog? Yorkshire has a rich heritage of fantastical folk stories, traditional tales and words of wisdom handed down through generations. Long-forgotten characters come back to life and old tales are retold with a sense of fun. A whole new generation will be enchanted by these stories set in the stunning Yorkshire landscape and bursting with local characters. They are beautifully retold and illustrated by storyteller and artist Carmel Page. She is a Southerner by birth but she has lived in Sheffield so long that she now uses her back-door as her front-door and has started to eat her dinner at lunchtime.
