A Book of Magic Adventures

£14.99

Product description

Very good condition hardback. Minimal shelf wear, minimal creasing in lamination of dust cover. Rebound to original boards. Gilt title and author block lettering to the spine. Internally clean and bright. Contains 128 printed pages of text with monochrome illustrations throughout.

In this new collection of unusual folk tales Ruth Manning-Sanders invites the reader to travel far and wide. These magic adventures span several countries, and cross oceans to the remotest corners of the world - they even visit Hell and the domains of the Sun, Moon and Wind. Against such backdrops are set tales of courage, bravery and love. A gypsy confronts a dragon with only a magic feather to help him. And a fiddler, by his daring, delivers a repentant landowner from eternal torture by dancing devils. There are tales of bewitched princes and princesses, of ogrish trolls who must be slain - tales peopled by a host of goblins, dwarves mannikins, wizards, witches and magic animals of every kind. This is indeed a rich collection to add to the Ruth Manning-Sanders library. And retold, as always, in her lively, compelling style.

Illustrated by Robin Jacques.
