Based on a Czech folk tale, this is the story of a little girl called Bethuska.
All her life Bethuska has been desperately poor but one day, while she is up in the silver birch tree grove, she meets a mysterious fairy woman who will change her life forever... The Apple Maiden
This is a Celtic legend from Ireland. It is often told as a great tragedy but the angle has been changed a little, to suggest that the kings son may have been happy with his fate... Next time you eat an apple cut it in half horizontally - this will reveal a star shape inside the apple, an ancient symbol of the fairy-folk.
The Elder Tree
This is a story created by Clare, using traditional folklore and herbal knowledge. There is a tall, silver woman who lives in the Elder tree. She is a wise woman and can heal many troubles - but be sure to ask her permission before cutting her wood, or, like the family in this story, she might just pay you a visit...

The enchantment of storytelling
My daughters really enjoyed the freeform storytelling style of this. Viner's dreamy folk style makes this a great bedtime audiobook or good for calming the kids down in the car.
