Cornish Tales

Cornish myths and tales for Children

Books by Cheryl Manley

Alongside my book on Cornish industrial history is a growing series of books that takes the myths and legends behind the landscape and transforms them into enchanting stories for young children. They are in a style that young children will love, with illustrations that young children will adore.
