Six strange and haunting stories, set in isolated communities by the sea and inland, where insiders stick together, and outsiders -- a girl outlawed for her illegitimate child, a wildman caught in a fisherman's nets -- are regarded with suspicion and fear.
Kevin Crossley-Holland has a genius for reinventing folk-tales in a way that makes the characters real people, whose thoughts and feelings are our own. This little collection brings together some of his finest and most admired retellings, including the three best-known of all, 'The Green Children', 'Sea-Tongue' and 'The Wildman'. Linked by ideas about exile and displacement, they make a thought-provoking book for our times, beautifully illustrated by a notable artist.
