Reader's note

'The British isles have a uniquely rich store of traditional tales, and this collection combines some of the best-known like 'Jack the Giant Killer' and 'The Pedlar of Swaffham' with others which are rarely told such as 'Tam Lin' and 'The Laidley Worm of Spindlestone Heigh'. It has all the right elements to appeal to a child's imagination - brave heroes and beautiful princesses, happy fools and clever lads, fearsome dragons and wicked giants - and many of the stories are connected with actual places. This Skylark collection is designed for the storyteller and for children to read for themselves, and Jo Worth's fine line drawings are the perfect complement to the text. All the stories have been told in Jackanory and are produced here by kind permission of the British broadcasting Corporation'. A gem among a bounty of stunning vintage books and classic novels on our online used bookstore.
