Traditional Scottish Tales: The Tale of Tam Linn
by Lari Don
Janet is forbidden from visiting the woods near her father’s castle because legend says that long ago a local boy called Tam Linn was stolen there by the fairy queen and never returned. But Janet isn’t afraid of fairy stories… Deep in the woods, by a well, she meets a fairy knight — the famous Tam Linn, forbidden to leave by the evil queen’s spell. Janet decides to save him, but when the queen and her army appear, fairy magic turns Tam Linn into a whole host of Scottish creatures. Can Janet hold on long enough to rescue him? Award-winning author Lari Don’s fresh take on this well-known story is perfectly complemented by artist Philip Longson’s breathtaking illustrations.
