In The Book of English Folk Tales, master storyteller, social historian and folklorist Sybil Marshall has collected the essential English folk tales, vividly retelling stories of giants, dragons, fairies, saints, ghosts, and the Devil for readers of all ages. Just as the Brothers Grimm created the preeminent collection of German fairy tales, Sybil Marshall has assembled here the best of English folklore. The Book of English Folk Tales presents a rich, robust world filled with dark and fantastical characters and features intricate wood engraved illustrations by esteemed English illustrator John Lawrence, making it the perfect addition to every home and school library.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A compilation of vivid, sometimes fearsome stories...The England we visit here has no afternoon teas or jolly rounds of cricket on lovely green lawns. In these pages, the sophisticated reader steps onto older, darker soil half-soaked in blood, superstition, and magic * The Wall Street Journal *
A beautiful collection that is stunningly presented... a wonderful gift for lovers of folklore, especially for those who want to expand their knowledge of English folk tales * The Bookbag *
