Outsiders - Kevin Crossley-Holland Beautiful. Six short stories, re-told from folk tales taken from around Britain.

These would be even more beautiful read aloud outside, whilst breathing in the fresh air. As with all Kevin Crossley-Holland's stories - there is this beautiful freedom - as if you're looking up into the sky. His long running sentences or short clipped exclamations shouting out to nature. I don't quite know how he does it.

My favourite story I think was The Wildman.
