The Lambton Worm - Young Lambton never imagined that his Sunday morning catch would one day terrorise the folk of Wearside. However, the courageous Sir John returns to his home town and ensures the Lambton Worm never again wraps itself round Penshaw Hill. This exciting legend is one in a series of children books based on North East England folk lore. Also in this series: 'The Blaydon Races', the famous Geordie anthem in colourful words and pictures. 'The Bamburg Serpent', based on the Northumberland legend ;the Laidley Worm of Bamburgh' - an enchanting tale colourfully illustrated. 'Cushy Butterfield', a traditional folk ballad of a beer-loving Tyneside character. All books are beautifully illustrated by artist Jorge Lulic and include lyrics and musical score

"The Blaydon Races" has been the anthem of Tyneside in the North East of England since it was written by music hall performer George Ridley in 1862.
Most Geordies know this from the song:

"O lads, ye should only seen us gannin,
We passed the foaks upon the road just as they were stannin:
Thor wes lots oí lads aní lasses there, all wií smiling faces.
Gan alang the Scotswood Road, to see the Blaydon Races."

In this edition, the full story is told with Jorge Lulić's
delightful drawings, for anyone with an interest 
in the folk lore of the North East England.

"Cushy Butterfield" (19th century) We know of Shoe-tie Anty, Nan the Mazer and Quayside Kate, but these women are shadowy figures in comparison with their larger-than-life male counterparts.

We certainly have to look carefully at Irving’s painting of the Blaydon Races to spot a well-known woman. The effort is worthwhile though, for there she is, almost rollicking her way out of the canvas – Cushy Butterfield. ​ Cushy was a beauty of the steam age. Large, strong, noisy and bustling, she would have been a good match for Puffing Billy, thundering through her home town of Gateshead. Her florid complexion was matched by her tastes in fashion. Big goloshes, white stockings and lilac gowns, topped with rakish hats, would have lent a splash of colour to the drabness of the quayside. ​

She collected clay, which she rolled into balls and sold to the house-proud who treated their floors and steps with it. The yellow clay, with a texture like sandstone, was probably obtained from near the banks of the river Tyne. This was undoubtedly thirsty work, and Cushy Butterfield is reputed to have liked her beer. She chose not to marry her keelman, to his great sorrow, and left him singing the well-known refrain of ‘She’s a big lass and a bonny lass and I wish she was here’.

"The Bamburgh Serpent" is a story based on the old Northumbrian legend ‘The Laidley Worm of Bamburgh’ from North East England.

This colourful tale tells of a sad prince who goes to a far-away land, a beautiful princess, a fearsome serpent, an ugly toad and magic spells.

An enchanting tale for young and old.
