Faeries and Folklore of the British Isles
This is a wonderful introduction to the host of strange sightings of supernatural beings who inhabit the British Isles both written and illustrated by Elizabeth Andrews. These tales of an enchanted kingdom come from all corners of the British Isles - from Ireland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, to the Scottish hills and then down to the tip of Cornwall. Many of the folk tales can be traced back to Celtic times and have been passed on orally, from old wives' tales to the spellbinding faerie stories we were told as children. Elizabeth Andrews describes in prose and through her fantastical artwork, the different types of creatures from the otherworld that have been seen, where they may still be found and their customs and habits. There are also wise tips on how to protect yourself against faerie magic if you venture into their haunts.
