Along the way you will meet incredible characters from history and myth: Boudicca, St Patrick, Robin Hood, Hereward the Wake, Captain Slash, Dionysia the female knight, beasts and angels, cobblers, and kings. From fairies to UFOs, these forty illustrated tales are ideal to be read out loud or used as a source book for your own performances.
