The Dr. Pat Show: Talk Radio to Thrive By!: Fairies, Pookas and Changelings: A Complete Guide to the Wild & Wicked Enchanted Realm with Varla Ventura

  04/12/2017  11:00 am PDT

While it is true that fairy folk love a good garden and take great pleasure in a tulip, there are dozens of beasties who fall under the fairy domain that are not quite as delightful as the quintessential flower fairy. This book is an exploration of the many things that go bump in the night near the fairy mound. Along with an exploration of folklore and historical literature, readers will delight in fairy tales that demonstrate everything from striking a bargain with a fairy to staving off changelings to laughing with the dwarves.

Included are fairy tales and myths from Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and Scandinavia plus classic stories by Thomas Crofton Croker, Joseph Jacobs, Clara Stroebe, the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, Yei Theodora, Ozaki, and others on goblins, trolls, gnomes, pookas, changelings, banshees, and more!

If you think fairies are merely delicate beings who follow you about on gossamer wings, you are in for quite a shock: the kingdom of the fairy is one with vengeance, thievery, trickery, and wild creatures. Consider yourself warned! 


Episode giveaways: Several copies of Varla's book will be given away during the show!
