By Margaret Stevenson Headley

(Hardback)

Inspired by an idyllic Stronsay childhood by field and shore, these stories were first written for the author's children before finding a wider audience in The Orcadian and The Orkney View

From the Peedie Sandlo and the Lickull Piggie, to the Muckle Grullyan and the Great Gruelly Belkie, they capture the real and the imaginary, rooted in Orkney's natural history, folklore and mythology.

Described as a "beautiful marriage of dialect, folklore and imagination," these deceptively simple tales have an appeal that is timeless and universal.
