Read full description of the books:
You've heard of Sam Small, of course. He's the little man who can answer any knotty question that comes up at the Spread Eagle tavern where the lads of Polkingthorpe Brig like to gather. Some of the time he's an ordinary mortal - as full of stubbornness and shrewdness and truthfulness as any Yorkshireman who ever blev the foam off four or five pints of good ale in an evening. The rest of the time...
Well, you'll have to read to believe how he learned to fly like a bird, by faith; how he changed a dog into a lass and back again; how he coped with the two selves of his split personality; and how he was called upon to explain the tricky foreign phrase, droit de seigneur, which said in effect that the duke of the neighboring parish was required by law to go to bed wih Ian Cawper's Mary Ann the night of their wedding.
