London Folk Tales for Children' by Anne Johnson and Sef Townsend, illustrated by Belinda Evans, published by The History Press, is a collection of thirteen stories with additional poems. Anne and Sef have gathered stories from the words and memories of Londoners past and present. The stories are of the 'immigrants' that have made London what it is and a 'London' folk tale may have begun in a place far away. You will meet Prince Duleep, the young maharajah who presented to Queen Victoria a diamond so big it was called 'the mountain of light'. You will hear street cries, songs of chimney sweeps, tales of cross-dressing Earls and escapees from The Tower of London with names like Thomas Blood. The human family s one family and this great family shows its many faces on the streets of London. London's windblown stories are as countless as the stars.
