JOIN JAMIE, the son of a travelling droll teller, as he journeys across Cornwall, a land steeped in myth and legend. Along the way you will hear mysterious and exciting tales like what happened when Bodrugan took his soldiers to capture Richard Edgcumbe, why the ghost of Lady Emma was never seen again, what proper job King Arthur gave the Giant and how St Piran came to settle in Cornwall. These stories - specially chosen to be enjoyed by 7- to 11-year-old readers - sparkle with magic and explode with adventure. As old as the moors and as wild as the sea, they have been freshly re-told for today's readers by storyteller Mike O'Connor.
