Children’s writer and poet Kevin Crossley-Holland talks about the eternal appeal of folk tales. Crossley-Holland is a masterly reteller of traditional stories. His spell-binding anthology Between the Worlds gathers together eerie and magical folktales from across Britain and Ireland, old stories that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Crossley-Holland is a poet, translator and writer for children. His particular area of interest and expertise is Norse and Anglo-Saxon literature and culture, and he has many publications in the adult lists. For children his books include retellings and collections of English folktales, Anglo-Saxon stories and Norse myths and legends. His multi-award-winning Arthur trilogy has sold more than a million copies worldwide, and he won the Carnegie Medal for Storm. Here he talks to fellow poet and award-winning author Kiran Millwood Hargrave, who is also fascinated by myth and folklore.
