Breaking the Spell

Stories of Magic and Mystery from Scotland

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books

A girl who is half seal, torn between land and sea; a monster who must build a house to get her baby back; a woman who must guess the name of a magical woodland creature to keep her son…here is a wonderful collection of myths, legends and fairy tales from Scotland.

A beautifully told and wide ranging selection of ten Scottish tales, or Scottish versions of well-known magical stories, are recreated and adapted by acclaimed writer Lari Don. The charming and evocative illustrations really bring these haunting tales to life. The author includes notes on the origins of each tale.
