Summary London-the greatest city on earth. Travelers, traders, buyers, beggars, soldiers, settlers, leaders, and laborers have crossed paths here, all languages and walks of life jostling and mingling. Two thousand years of stories are waiting to be told. This wonderful collection, which is as light and dark, quirky and diverse as the capital itself, brings these stories to life by professional storyteller and long-term London resident Helen East. Drawing on oral history, folk sources, and written texts, she retells old favorites like Dick Whittington alongside glorious new discoveries, such as royal rats, Saint Uncumber, ghosts and fateful fish. With 50 beautiful illustrations, this book will charm and delight residents and visitors alike.
