When writers allow their imagination to run free, we can enjoy their written creations; novels, short stories or poems. Many of these are then turned into scripts and the screenplays of television shows and films by other writers who have vision. Without the imagination of writers who were encouraged as children, where would these wonderful examples of theatre and screen production come from? To ensure we have authors such as Roald Dahl, J K Rowling, Neil Gaiman and Jacqueline Wilson in the future, it is up to us to nurture hte imagination of our young people. - Julie Malone, Founder and President of New Writers UK

In Telling Tales, Joel Rosenthal takes us on a journey through some familiar sources from fourteenth- and fifteenth-century England to show how memories and recollections can be used to build a compelling portrait of daily life in the late Middle Ages. Rosenthal is a senior medievalist whose work over the years has spanned several related areas, including family history, women's history, the life cycle, and memory and testimony. In Telling Tales, he brings all of these interests to bear on three seemingly disparate bodies of sources: the letters of Margaret Paston, depositions from a dispute between the Scropes and Grosvenors over a contested coat of arms, and Proof of Age proceedings, whereby the legal majority of an heir was established. In Rosenthal's hands these familiar sources all speak to questions of testimony, memory, and narrative at a time when written records were just becoming widespread. In Margaret Paston, we see a woman who helped hold family and family business together as she mastered the arduous and complex task of letter writing. In the knights whose tales were elicited for the Scrope and Grosvenor case, we witness the bonding of men in arms in the Hundred Years War. From the Proofs of Age, we have brief tales that are rich in the give-and-take of daily life in the village - memories of baptisms, burials, a trip to market, a fall from a roof, or marriage to another juror's sister.

Although nearly everyone has heard the name of Robin Hood, few have actually read any medieval tales about the legendary outlaw. Stephen Knight and Thomas Ohlgren set out to correct this discrepancy in their comprehensive collection of all pre-seventeenth-century Robin Hood tales. The editors include such other "outlaw" figures as Hereward the Wake, Eustache the Monk, and Fouke le Fitz Waryn to further contextualize the tradition of English outlaw tales. In this text the figure of Robin Hood can be viewed in historical perspective, from the early accounts in the chronicles through the ballads, plays, and romances that grew around his fame and impressed him on our fictional and historical imaginations. This edition is particularly useful for classrooms, with its extensive introductions, notes, and glosses, enabling students of any level to approach the texts in their original Middle English.

"It is no very easy matter for an author to condense his own work into so small a space as one-half or one-third of its original magnitude. ...I have considered it better to rearrange fragmentary portions of the original story into another form of narrative,... I have presented only the direct adventures of Robin Hood and of certain important members of his band. I have given a couple of chapters relating to their quarrel with the Sheriff of Nottingham; I have introduced Robin Hood to the Court at London and have brought King Richard of the Lion's Heart into the Forest of Sherwood." -- Preface.

Uncivil War

Twin tales from Nottinghamshire Noel Harrower. This book is dedicated to Roger
Grainger who first encouraged me to go on writing and telling tales, and to
Maureen Buxton, who is so very fond of English history tales, and also to the
countless thousands of child soldiers across the world and through all the ages.

These twin tales follow the raising of the King’s Standard at Nottingham Castle in 1642, through to 1646, when King Charles surrended to the Scottish army outside Newark. Set in Nottinghamshire, Uncivil War tells the story of five children caught in the conflict of the English Civil War. Tom, a stable boy; his sister Meg, a maidservant at Pierrepoint Hall; Nick, who never wanted to be a soldier; Jed, who did but later regrets it; and Alice, who is left to help run a refuge for victims. Seen through the eyes of innocent children, Uncivil War depicts the characters’ initial excitement at the thought of conflict but later hating the war and questioning the need for it at all. This book highlights the struggles children may face during wartime, as well as the lessons that still need to be learnt. While all the children are fictitious, the main adult characters are based on real people who lived in the county of Nottinghamshire at the time. This book gives a modern take to novels such as Marriott’sChildren of the New Forest.

With a slender design and appealing art, Cullinan and Galda present a thought provoking discussion on how children can read to respond, read to learn, and read to enjoy. This text provides evaluation criteria for selecting superior children's books, rather than listing thousands of titles and synopses. Booklists direct readers to quality literature, and extended discussions of selected titles demonstrate the selection criteria. Multicultural literature is discussed throughout the text, with a separate chapter on more specific multicultural issues. Numerous teaching ideas, many of which are contributed by classroom teachers, provide practical applications. This is a book for teachers, stressing the use of good books in a literature based curriculum.
