‘All the children of the Borders were told the story of a boy called Tam Linn, who had been stolen by the fairies. And they were told the story of a fierce fairy knight who now guarded the woods for the fairy queen.
But Janet didn’t believe in fairy stories and Janet didn’t like being told what to do.’

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…

The magical adaption of the traditional Scottish fairy tale by award-winning author Lari Don and illustrator Philip Longson will capture any child’s imagination.
