This beautiful volume is simply one of the finest folklore collections and most alive retellings ever committed to paper, all the better for being enhanced by truly beautiful illustrations that capture the magic, warmth and wonder of these tales.  Theresa Breslin has managed to convey each tale in its own voice, while making her telling of it immediate and personal.  You can almost hear the fire crackling as she beckons you to come closer and listen. 

Here are funny tales, moving stories, and enchanting fairy tales. Soar with the goshawk, dive with selkies and battle with the stoorworm, as each story is brought to life with Kate Leiper’s exquisite illustrations that brim with otherworldly beauty.

A wonderful gift, this is a truly stunning book to be treasured for a lifetime and will be enjoyed by parents and grandparents as well as children.

Ages 4 and up, with the understanding that not all of the stories are suitable for the very young, but some are.
