An Illustrated Treasury of Scottish Folk and Fairy Tales

Dr. Rudolf Steiner Bookstore and Children's Shop

Slithering stoorworms, mischievious brownies, fierce kelpies and magical selkies—these are the creatures of Scottish folklore.

An Illustrated Treasury of Scottish Folk and Fairy Tales is by an award-winning children’s author Theresa Breslin who has collected the best-loved tales from all over Scotland. Retelling each in its own individual style, she presents funny tales, moving stories, and enchanting fairy tales. Soar with the goshawk, dive with selkies and battle with the stoorworm, as each story is brought to life with Kate Leiper’s exquisite illustrations that brim with otherworldly beauty.
