After talking all things Nordic in his Norse Myths anthology, now master storyteller Kevin Crossley-Holland wants to tell you the tales of a world a little closer to home.

Join the Carnegie Medal-winning author as he transports you back in time to a world of British myths and folklore.His newest anthology, Between Worlds, beautifully illustrated by Frances Castle, talks of magic and wonder, love, fairies, and even some extremely spooky ghosts.

Dark and funny, lyrical and earthy, these stories are part of the culturally-important and enduring historic tradition of the weaving of tales.
