3 Folklore E- Books

Ghosts, giants, and gods, oh my! These folklore E-books have it all. Power up those E-readers, get comfortable, and dive into these fun folklore books:

Carnacki, the Ghost-Finder
Long before supernatural detectives became popular in television and movies, there was Carnacki,the Ghost-Finder. This E-book is a collection of supernatural detective short stories by author William Hope Hodgson. First published in 1913, the stories center around the "detective of the occult,"  Thomas Carnacki, as he attempts to get the bottom of numerous hauntings and other mysterious paranormal disturbances.

The Mammoth Book of Celtic Myths and Legends
Written by Peter Berresford Ellishas, The Mammoth Book of Celtic Myths and Legends is overflowing with tales of gods, goddesses, heroes and heroines. Developed from an early oral storytelling tradition dating back to the dawn of European culture, Ellishas brings some of the oldest and most vibrant of Europe's mythologies to life.

Kate and the Beanstalk
A clever twist on a classic fairy tale, Mary Pope Osborne and Giselle Potter's Kate and the Beanstalk stars a whip-smart girl instead of traditionally lazy, not-so-bright Jack. Giselle Potter's enchanting illustrations bring Kate, the inspiring heroine, to life. You'll cheer on this resourceful, gutsy girl as she outsmarts the famously greedy giant.
