Herein are 26 illustrated tales about the goblins, fairies, elves, pixies, and ghosts of Lancashire for children. As you can see this book is not only about goblins but rather about the many beings which inhabit the lands of the Fairy Kingdom. Herein you will find stories like: * The White Dobbie * The Skriker, or Shrieker * The Unbidden Guest * The Fairy's Spade * The King Of The Fairies * The Captured Fairies * The Pillion Lady * The Fairy Funeral * The Silver Token * The Rescue Of Moonbeam; plus many, many more. But are goblins really as bad as they’ve been made out to be? Over the years, we have been told to think of Goblins as the most undesirable members of the Fairy kingdom. Well, if all the stories we read are only about the bad, or evil, Goblins, then that is likely to sway our opinion. It reminds me of the old adage, “The victorious in battle, get to write the world’s history.” In times well past, it is easy to understand how the unlettered peasant could people desolate areas with beings of another world; either the bleak fells, the deep and gloomy gorges, the wild cloughs, the desolate moorland wastes; or the salt marshes where the breeze-bent and mysterious-looking trees waved their spectral boughs in the wind; the dark pools fringed with reeds, amid which the 'Peg-o'-Lantron' flickered and danced, and over which came the hollow cry of the bittern and the child-like plaint of the plover; and the dreary glens, dark lakes, and long stretches of sand of the north and west. To them the forest was a place of solemn, Rembrandt-esque gloom, where Druids erst heard victims groan, the lonely fir-crowned pikes, and the mist-shrouded mountains, would seem fitting homes for the dread shapes whose spite ended itself in the misfortunes and misery of humanity. Pregnant with mystery to such a mind would be the huge fells, with their shifting 'neetcaps' of cloud, the towering bluffs, the swampy moors, and trackless morasses, across which the setting sun cast floods of blood-red light; and irresistible would be the influence of such scenery upon the imagination of lonely traveler riding, or walking, between villages and towns at night, with a feeling that he was surrounded by the supernatural. So sit back with a steamy beverage and be prepared to be entertained for many-an-hour. 10% of the net sale will be donated to charities by the publisher. ============== KEYWORDS/TAGS: Goblins of Lancashire, fairy tales, folklore, myths, legends, children’s stories, childrens stories, bygone era, fairydom, ethereal, fairy land, classic stories, children’s bedtime stories, happy place, happiness, elf, elves, pixie, piskie, supernatural, Skriker, Unbidden, Guest, Fairy's Spade, King Of The Fairies, Mother And Child, Spectral Cat, Captured Fairies, Pillion Lady, Fairy Funeral, Chivalrous Devil, Enchanted Fisherman, Sands Of Cocker, Silver Token, Headless Woman, Rescue Of Moonbeam, sun, moon, White Dobbie, Little Man's Gift, Satan's Supper, Earthenware Goose, Phantom Of The Fell, Allhallow's Night, Christmas-Eve Vigil, Crier Of Claife, Demon Of The Oak, Black Cock, Invisible Burden
