A golden treasury of over one hundred English folktales, presented in the form in which they were first collected. Read these classic tales as they would have been heard when storytelling was a living art - when the audience believed in boggarts and hobgoblins, local witches and will-o’-the-wisps, ghosts and giants, cunning foxes and royal frogs. Neil Philip has provided a full introduction and source notes that illuminate each tale’s journey from mouth to page, and show what happened to them on the way.
