'The Lightbringers is a charming addition to anyone's collection and is perfect for any aged reader who loves folk tales and to enjoy the magic within a book's pages.' Ann Richards, Books up North
'Reassuring and calming, utterly magical, a reminder of wonder and light and a promise. The first of four seasonal stories, this is the perfect gift for young and old.' Fallen Star Stories
The first in a series of four titles based on the seasons, nature and folklore, The Lightbringers is a story of hope centring on the notion that the light will always return, even in the darkest of days.
The midwinter solstice provides the focal point for a journey by the little creatures as they seek to return light to earth, but it is a journey that evokes the traditions of the Mari Lwyd walking the villages of Wales and Wassail songs being sung in the orchards. Made up of two key parts, this book contains the story of The Lightbringers and a brief introduction to the myth and legend surrounding the season and festivals of midwinter. Suitable for readers of all ages.
The story is accompanied by photographs of the felt creatures created by Karin Celestine visually telling the story, hand-drawn illustrations by Tamsin Rosewell and notes on folklore traditions during the winter solstice by Pamela Thom-Rowe.
