HOW does a goddess become a witch? Why do the 9 o’clock horses roam the streets of Leicester? Where can you find a bleeding gravestone? And should you be afraid of the shag-dog?
Everywhere has a story to tell. Every building, road, forest and field. Some are true, some are not. These stories have been passed down through the ages so that we don’t forget them, and now they are being passed on to you. They will open your eyes to the wonders of what lies just around the corner. You will become the keeper of these local tales.
Leicestershire Folk Tales for Children is a book to read on your own, together or out loud. Bring our folk tales to life and let them leap off the page.
