It is a supreme pleasure to settle in for a story (or two, or three) with a master storyteller, and there are few as spellbinding as Lari Don. One of Scotland’s most celebrated storytellers – Lari is an extremely talented writer and orator, with a tremendous gift for bringing folklore, fairy tales and myths alive for all audiences!

Join us for a morning of tales from two new collections: Horse of Fire and Serpents and Werewolves.

Serpents and Werewolves is an enthralling collection of folk tales: from the girl whose stepmother turned her into a dragon, to the werewolf’s bride, and the god who became a fish but was caught in his own net… We’ll also be transported to the worlds of a magical winged Pegasus, and other legendary horses. Horse of Fire has a brilliant selection of folk tales about horses that will thrill and entertain. Stories from countries as diverse as Russia and Gambia and traditions as different as the Navajo people and the ancient Greeks make this a really inclusive anthology, perfect for any horse lover.

Ideal for children aged 7-12
