Jenny Moon has just had a book published…‘Folk Tales of Rock and Stone’ (The History Press).
The book is a collection of 25 tales about rock and stone from all over the world. Some of the stories are designed to inform about rock and stone and they have local relevance (fossils, worked flint, a pebble from the Pebblebed Heaths and stories from Beer Quarry Caves) and most are folk stories that relate to rock or stone in many forms – statues, salt, ceramics, mountains with faces caved onto them, volcanoes and so on.
The book is aimed at children from 8 to over 100 and as a storyteller, Jenny has told stories to people over all that age range in local schools, care homes, dementia groups and at public events. A good story is a good story for any age (except for the very young who need their own stories). Jenny did all the illustrations except that on the cover (which actually depicts elements of all of the stories).
Jenny has a stock of the books, or you can buy from Amazon.
