An exquisitely illustrated guide to the monster myths of the Channel Islands: dark yet playful retellings of ancient legends. The Channel Islands have a vast treasure trove of ancient tales. Their rich legacy of interwoven folklore sparkles like an antique tapestry full of fairy creatures and mythical beasts. This book weaves a web of deliciously dark monster stories from centuries of fables and fragments. It contains fantastic adventures and fearsome fairy tales, forgotten treasure, tall tales, horror and high romance. Some monsters of the islands will seem familiar, there are Werewolves, and Mermaids, Changelings and Dragons. There are also monsters which are strange and unique to the Channel Islands; the Vioge, Les Cocagnes, the Belengi and L'Emanue and more. These ancient creatures wait to be rediscovered, in whispering woods or rushing waves, with their eyes still shining and their claws still sharp. AUTHOR: Erren Michaels has a BA (Hons) in Literature and ten years experience of marketing in the Arts. While working in theatre she wrote, and performed in, live sketch shows.
