Format: Paperback
This book is just great - beautifully presented with gorgeous illustrations, and stunningly well written. I've tried reading traditional stories before and found them a bit bland, but Michael Dacre is a true master of the art of storytelling, and brings folk tales to life in a way that restores magic to our everyday world.

Beware, this is not a book for children - every now and again I feel the touch of the Huge Hairy Hands, and hear the howling of the Big Black Dog that leapt from the pages of this book; I never knew that there were pixies in Devon, but they are alive and well and waiting to play tricks on the unwary!

This book is highly recommended and well worth every penny I paid for it!

Format: Paperback
This book is part of a series which will eventually cover every county in Britain. If they are all as good as this it will be a great resource. Michael Dacre has collected stories from every corner of Devon, taking us right back in time to Brutus' arrival in Totnes fresh from the Trojan War, to the spooky horrors that await modern drivers on some of Devon's remote back roads. A quirky humour shines through, and the illustrations (uncredited, but by Wendy Dacre), which are luminous, lovely and mysterious, add to the magic of the tales. A good read which would make an interesting guide book on a tour round this lovely county.

Received it this morning and read the Two Farmers which was very good. Love Michael's amusing style. If the rest of the book is as good then I will probably borrow a few tales to tell to my friends.
