    A fantastic collection of fairy stories and the second of Rosalind Kerven's books I've read this year and I'm definitely going to read any further publicationsFairy tales aren't just for kids as an adult I thoroughly enjoyed this read It took me right back to my childhood These old stories are timeless and wonderfully told in Faeries Elves and Goblins As an adult the background to some of the stories was extremely interesting I love reading anything that increases my general knowledge But Faeries are not only for children's eyes they are often spied by sensible matrons and reputable middle aged menThis book has gorgeous illustrations throughout I always paused to look them over Even the chapter pages had me staring for a whileThe tales are from everywhere I loved that there was something to make me stop and think I know this oneGo out and buy this book I had an e copy via Net Galley for review but I picked up a copy during a visit to a National Trust property and the uality is great Definitely get the hard copy a screen doesn't do this beautiful book justice

    I absolutely loved this The artwork was whimsical and magical the stories were short but very interesting so it kept my attention very well there were little sections that had overviews on faeries in a nonfictional kinda way the end was all notes on each story and the different regional variations I really liked the last section and I also liked how the author put ALL of her sources in the end so if you want to keep doing your own research you can find everything she used Really awesome compendium and general scholarly knowledge on faerie

    I really loved this book It just has a lot of beautiful illustrations that take up a lot of room so the book is a lot thinner than it looks The stories were really sweet and tons I haven't heard of before which is always a plus to me

    A great and whimsical collection of several legendstales about all kinds of faeries I love the illustrations and also the ending notes about each story where the author explains the different variations of itIt’s a great recourse for a writer of fairy inspired fantasy books

    25 stories 1 Manx 3 Welsh 3 Irish 5 Scottish and 13 English So uite a clear focus on English folk tales which seems a bit of a shame given that the author has already dedicated 2 books to English folk tales It would have been nice to see a better spread especially given the Notes at the back supplied brief examples of plenty of WelshScottishIrishManx stories that also fitted whichever trope or style the author was giving representation to with each story choice That being said the stories are wonderfully written and illustrated The notes give a great insight into repeating patterns in folk tales across the British Isles and I really enjoyed reading it The introductions to each chapter were a great touch too I learnt a lot If you’re interested in Folk Tales then I definitely recommend this book

    I loved reading these short tales of Faeries Elves and Goblins Some of the stories seemed a bit too similar to both be included in the same collection I think for me personally the stories were so short that I shouldn't have read it all in one go because it felt very stop and go to me but that's how short fairytales typically are I thought it was neat that the author included all the places of origin of the specific versions of the stories There is some debate that goblins were actually anti semitic caricatures because they're greedyhave hooked noses but the goblin stories seemed that they were just there to play tricks on and bother mortals than anything else At least for the ones in this collection

    Traditional fairy tales from England Ireland Scotland and Wales with illustrations Beautiful illustrations highlight the beginning of every chapter If you write fairy tales and need a resource book this is it But this isn't just a book to give to a child This is a grown up book too There are references in the text for additional Fairy sources Some old fashioned words and phrases in the stories and poems I loved the feeling of being re introduced to old legends and mythologies through these stories Norse to Celtic this is a good read and a must have for any fantasy author


  8. Elisabetta Elisabetta says:

    I feel like I really can’t rate an anthology of old faerie tales and still be fair Overall it was a good uick read I enjoyed most of the stories but some of the language and phrases the editor used to rewrite the stories were weird I just don’t know why the editor would use language that didn’t uite fit with the history of the story No big deal it was just interesting


  9. Desiree Desiree says:

    35 starsA sweet collection of fairy folklore stories from England Wales Ireland Scotland and the Isle of Man Other related tidbits are interspersed between them and there are additional notes with a little detail about stories and sources at the end
