    Odd little pagan folktale, previously unknown to me. Although the woodcut-style illustrations were nice, I probably would've preferred an adult study on the persistence of nature worship superstitions a la Jessie Weston. The narrative voice rang completely wrong for me; I couldn't stop hearing it was one of those generic Ye-Olde type narrations one sometimes gets at the start of low grade horror or fantasy films, where some elderly-sounding voice with a generic, vaguely Celtic accent sketches out some poorly-grounded information about bad spirits or leprechauns or gargoyles. Fake old-fashioned regionalisms for color, etc. "Mischancy things, aye, laddies! Beware ye o' te Bogles!" Also, although boggans and some other sorts of supernatural creatures are mentioned as a concern of the villagers, they never feature in the story, which is just cheating.

    This book was very interesting in that the green mist was responsible for good crops and health. I found that the green mist being tied to a little girls health was very sad but at the same time very intriguing.

    A very peculiar English folk legend. Is there really a green mist?? Very eerie.
