Publisher's Summary

The islands of Britain and Ireland hold a rich heritage of plant folklore and wisdom, from the magical yew tree to the bad-tempered dandelion. Here are traditional tales about the trees and plants that shape our landscapes and our lives through the seasons. They explore the complex relationship between people and plants, in lowlands and uplands, fields, bogs, moors, woodlands and towns.

Wee Folk, Giants and Witches. Oh, My!

A wonderful reading of Botanical Folktales. It's full of stories of wee folks, giants and witches all related to plants both domestic and wild.

I was mesmerized. If you're a fan of British folklore and mythology, you will surely love this book.

I enjoyed these stories very much.

most of the tales were new to me so hearing them has broadened my folklore scope. And the narrator is pleasant as well as well versed in the languages of the ares.

cute and clever

I'd highly recommend this book for a car ride or for a bit of light reading the stories are well read and not too long. I found myself wanting for more information, well I guess I'm off to find a book on just that.

Ok narration

Would benefit from better local pronunciation, place names and Irish words such as uisce beatha are mispronounced

This is an absolutely wonderful book

The narration was clear and expressive and the storytelling was entertaining. Plants are fascinating to me, and their lore is rich and interesting. I will definitely listen again.
