East Lothian Folk Tales for Children


"East Lothian's landscape has mysterious and intriguing stories sewn into it. This collection of tales has witches and wizards, magical creatures and eerie happenings. There are dragons, faeries, ghosts and selkies. You will be whispered secrets by an ancient tree, discover why the Skeleton Boy made his home in Hanging Rock Cave, and how a rat became more than just a rat.

With specially selected stories for the enjoyment of 7-11 year old readers, there is something to delight and amuse in every tale."

I had the pleasure of illustrating this charming book of folk tales for children, written by Tim Porteus. Based on a different location, each story in this book is an opportunity to explore and discover East Lothian's hidden gems. Published by the independent publishers: The History Press, it's a wonderful blend of imaginative folklore tales for all the family.
