Synopsis

From 2014 to 2018, people all over the world will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. They will not only be honouring those who lost their lives on the battlefield between 1914 and 1918, they will also be remembering everyone who played a part in, or lived through, those troubled times. First World War Folk Tales is a very special collection of legends and folk tales from the First World War era. This special centenary collection shows how elements of truth can become legend, how people often attempt to explain the strange and the mysterious through stories and tales, and how storytelling can ease the pain and burden of war.

Taffy Thomas is a storyteller and performer who gives around 300 storytelling performances a year. He is the author of Cumbrian Folk Tales, and was given the honorary position of first Laureate for Storytelling in 2012. Helen Watts is a former commissioning editor for Scholastic and has her own small publishing company, The Literacy Club, and runs Aston Hill Editorial Services. She has been nominated for the Carnegie Medal in 2014, and is the author of No Stone Unturned, One Day in Oradour, and wrote The Ghost of the Trenches and other Stories with Thomas.
