Morrison. Manx Fairy Tales

Today's free book is Manx Fairy Tales by Sophia Morrison (1911). You can read more about the Isle of Man and Manx culture at Wikipedia.

For the table of contents, check at the bottom of this post below the image.

The book is available at Project Gutenberg (I have not checked for other online sources), and there is a free audiobook from LibriVox.
