Tales from the Celtic Countries

Publisher: Y Lolfa

Review

Fables and myths will often attempt to explain unusual or unfair events, or perhaps illustrate a preferred moral principle and those included in this volume are no exception.

This unusual story collection features a total of 12 tales from the six Celtic countries: Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Cornwall and the Isle of Man. Fabulous, ethereal illustrations capture the magical nature of the narratives which, like all the oldest fables, are rather grisly but also hilarious and quirky.

Retold by an award-winning expert, stories range from the very simple to the surprisingly complex, making this a book with something for everyone.
