"Gathered from practicing storytellers, tales range from "Teeny Tiny" and "The Pixies' Beds" for young children to spooky ghost stories and witch tales, such as "Wild Edric" and "Jenny Greenteeth" for older readers and listeners. An enticing assortment of more than 50 traditional English tales reflects the depth and diversity of the folk heritage of Britain, and illustrates the ties between stories, land, and people." "In addition, you'll find background information - notes on the tales and the tellers, a brief history of England, a map, color photos, a glossary, and a bibliography of sources. A wonderful resource for read-alouds and programs, an indispensable source for storytellers, and a great research tool for students."--BOOK JACKET.
