FOLK TALES OF BRITTANY - 15 illustrated children's stories
A great read for children in summer and for reading around a crackling hearth on a cold winter night!
We have to thank Elsie Masson for collecting these tales. These have been drawn from the French province of Brittany which includes St. Malo, Brest and Rennes as its principle cities.
Herein you will find 15 folk and fairy tales drawn from this region. These may even seem to be a refreshing new find for, you, the reader. Most have not made it into mainstream Western folklore, but nevertheless are still well known in Brittany. Even if you haven’t read some of these stories, you can rest assured that all will entertain with their content and Thornton Oakley’s abundant illustrations are bound to fire young imaginations.
In this volume you will find Stories like:
The Castle of Comorre
The Basin of Gold and the Diamond Lance
