A Treasury of British Folklore - Chainey

£12.99Price

Subtitled, 'Maypoles, Mandrakes & Mistletoe', Dee Dee Chainey's new book  introduces the reader to British folklore, folk customs and mythic creatures. She explains why you shouldn't get married in May, how to hang your trousers to prevent  visits from fairies, and how to open locks using a green frog. And much more. This pleasing hardcover book is illustrated with woodcuts, so the reader is enchanted whilst learning the lore of blacksmiths, the tales of ancient gods, and the accounts of wild men joining hymn-singing bees. It makes a wonderful gift: a best-selling title at Treadwell's.
