Read full description of the books:
This adaptation of this traditional, spooky tale from the Scottish borders is intended for a young audience (Pre-K to 2nd grade), so Don leaves out or alters some of the darker elements of the tale that are more suited to adult readers. However, the spirit of the story has been preserved! This is a very empowering story for young women, focusing on the courage and heroism of Janet, who is determined to free the young man Tam Linn from the power of the Fairy Queen. The heroine of this Scottish tale serves as a counterpoint to the 'damsel in distress' stereotype of so many modern adaptations of fairy tales. The illustrations are dark but beautifully executed, matching the atmosphere of the story. A beautiful adaptation and valuable addition to any folklore or fairy tale collection!

Read information about the authorI'm a children's writer based in Scotland, and most of my fiction is inspired by the Scottish landscape and local legends. I love writing fantasy adventures for 8 - 12 year olds, but I also love creating stories for other age groups.
I've said goodbye to the characters in my Fabled Beast Chronicles series, and am very excited about the new adventure I've been writing, the Spellchasers Trilogy. I've been trying out different genres too, and have recently published Mind Blind, a YA thriller set in Scotland and London.
I've written several picture books, including one about bottoms (which I enjoy reading to infant classes!) and I've written retellings of myths for older readers, including a collection of my favourite Scottish legends and folklore called Breaking the Spell.
I read a lot of non-fiction, because a lot of my fictional ideas are inspired by folklore and history. I also read a lot of children’s fiction, because kids get all the best stories! And sometimes I remember how old I am, and read books for adults. I also love discussing books, and answering queries about my books and stories, so please do get in touch. You can chat to me here on Goodreads, or through my own website, http://www.laridon.co.uk, or follow me on Twitter @LariDonWriter, or find me on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/laridonwriter. Have fun reading!
