Where can I go to find out about fairies, superstitions and remedies?
Here is a great start! If you are in Guernsey, we highly recommend a visit to the Folklore Gallery at Guernsey Museum.
The book 'Folklore of Guernsey' by Marie de Garis is the most comprehensive and accessible book about Guernsey folklore. It is not specifically aimed at children but is a good starting point for adults.
