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.
The Mermaid of Seaton
A mermaid, a fisherman and a vengeful sea. This is a tale from South East Cornwall that all children who love mermaids will read over and over again.
The Legend of Tamara
Giants, a troll and a fairy in a story of love and loss set on the wild moorland of Dartmoor and the Cornish border. Tavy, Taw and Tamar, are the three characters in this tale, three rivers whose creation is explained by the legend of Tamara.
