This beautifully illustrated hardcover presents 16 traditional fairy tales from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany and Wales. Sourced from late 19th and early 20th century collections, these stories are full of wit, adventure and the magic of ancient Celtic lore. Each tale is paired with a full-page, 2-colour illustration by artist Kate Forrester, whose work mimics the style of papercutting. With a die-cut cover and ribbon marker, this special edition is gifty, fresh and sophisticated.

Review:

'Divided into four categories-'Tricksters, ' 'The Sea, ' 'Quests, ' and 'Romance'-the 16 tales that make up this handsomely designed collection are adapted from sources originally published between 1888 and 1929, now in the public domain. Full-page silhouette-style images from British illustrator Forrester open each tale, framed within intricate borders featuring fish, gravestones, dragons, and other thematic imagery entwined with Celtic knots. Witches, selkies, fairies, and other creatures make appearances in the brisk tales, which tend toward light humor and happy resolutions. It's an absorbing introduction to the lore of Albion, but readers will also enjoy teasing out similarities between these tales and more familiar ones-the Scottish tale of 'The Black Bull of Norroway' carries echoes of 'Beauty and the Beast, ' while a clumsy girl named Ursula features in the Rumpelstiltskin-like story that opens the collection.' --Publishers Weekly

'This is such a beautiful bind up and I am so happy I found it. I love the illustrations by Kate Forrester on the cover, and then the picture at the beginning of each story. I really love her simplistic style and the colours pallet they used for this book. You can see an example of one of the pictures below!' --WeeReader
