The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Publisher: David Fickling Books
Corpse Talk author Adam Murphy and colourist/co-creator Lisa Murphy have been delving into all four corners of the earth to bring you a collection of fascinating myths and legends from all over the world. They tell the stories with great humour and fantastic pictures, bringing them crackling back to life.
Taken from a series in the Phoenix magazine, this is a collection of graphic folk tales from around the globe. At turns funny, beautiful and sad, these tales take you into worlds where a poor man is unable to stop himself giving ever-larger gifts to royalty, a wily farmer tricks his two sneaky neighbours, and a lonely Brazilian princess yearns for a friend. The stories are touching and fun - and every reader will find something to fascinate within them.
