Chance to hear fables told again

CHILDREN’S writer Margaret McAllister will be retelling old tales at Hebden Bridge Bookshop on Saturday.

The Hebden Bridge author will read from her new book, The Lion Classic Aesop’s Fables, from 1pm at the Crown Street venue.

A shop spokesperson said the book, with illustrations by Amanda Hall, sees Margaret turn her pen to retell great stories.

“Stylishly written, Margaret covers all the best-loved fables, as well as those that are less well-know,” added the spokesperson.
