Traditional Scottish Tales: The Tale of Tam Linn

retold by Lari Donn, ill. Philip Longson



Sep 2014


Published in Floris book’s Picture Kelpies: Traditional Tale series, this is a very satisfactory retelling, sumptuously illustrated, handsomely presented and attractively priced. Recommended for all children’s and school libraries but also as an individual gift.

Another equally good title in the same series:
The Dragon Stoorworm, retold by Theresa Breslin, ill. Matthew Land

And here is a video showing Philip Longson at work on the illustrations for Tam Linn:
