In The Fairy Tellers award-winning author Nicholas Jubber unearths the lives of the dreamers, rebels, thieves and forgotten geniuses who made our most beloved fairy tales.

Following these and other unlikely protagonists, we travel from the steaming cities of Italy and the Levant, under the dark branches of the Black Forest, deep into the tundra of Siberia and across the snowy fells of Lapland. In the process, we discover a fresh perspective on some of our most frequently told stories. Filled with adventure, tragedy and real-world magic, this bewitching book uncovers the stranger lives behind the strangest of tales.

Nicholas is joined by Amy Jeffs, author of Storyland, a beautifully illustrated mythology of Britain featuring retellings of medieval tales of legend, landscape and the yearning to belong. These stunning books are told with narrative flair, embellished with stunning artworks and filled with wonder.
