The Orchard Book of Love and Friendship
Exceptional storyteller Geraldine McCaughrean and talented illustrator Jane Ray team up to produce this beautifully crafted collection of folk tales centred around the themes of love and friendship.
There are twelve stories, ranging from possibly the most famous love story of all time, 'Romeo and Juliet', to the moving Welsh folktale of friendship, loyalty and distrust in 'Unforgivable'.
At the end of the book there is a short paragraph about the origins of each tale. The combination of exquisite illustrations and stimulating narrative transports the reader into a magical world of love, passion and friendship.
