Yorkshire Folk Tales for Children

127 pages1 hour


Where in Yorkshire can you walk on a dragon’s backbone? Who goes dancing at the Spot Bottom Hops? Which very old story gives advice about loading a dishwasher? Which mischievous child invented Yorkshire pudding? And is it safe to offer a gift to a small-toothed dog?

Yorkshire has a rich heritage of fantastical folk stories, traditional tales and words of wisdom handed down through generations.

These tales are beautifully retold here for 7- to 11-year-old readers, written and illustrated by storyteller and artist Carmel Page –a southerner by birth but who has lived in Sheffield for so long that she now uses her backdoor as her frontdoor and has started to eat her dinner at lunchtime.
