An excellent book giving good historical contextual information and old folk tales from a sampling of the Celtic nations. It sets the standard for this type of book combining rare historical insight to the oral tradition.
It is suitable book/gift for any 7-16 year old.

WOW! What a refreshing Celtic Mythology Book! 19 Nov. 2000
By Scott Peden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was a very plesant suprise! I have read and own many folklore and Mythology books of the Celtic Peoples. This book covers a wide range, educates you and entertains you at the same time. Dr. Bob Curran tells us about GIANTS, DEMONS, FAIRIES, MERFOLK, MONSTERS, HALFLINGS, SOLITARY FAIRIES AND SPRITES, WITCHES, WIZARDS and WISE WOMEN, and ANCIENT HEROS, and yet it is not the same old, same old, stories redone again and again. This is not an Encyclopedic book as I had though when ordering, it has only 29 stories,taken fron lore and legend, and each creature is quite well explained in the story. There is also an introduction at the beginning of each chapter explaining the subject in General, translated into an english language that Americans understand. The Stories come from WALES, BRITIAN, CORNWALL, SCOTLAND, IRELAND, BRITTANY, and the ISLE OF MAN. This book is very readable, and if your children are not easily frightened, could be read as a story a night Book. In the Introduction to the Book Mr. Curran gives a very good overview of the Celts and how we came from oral tradition, to something written. In his own words "This book will, hopefully, give a taste of the varied tapestry of the Celtic Imagination and perspective." I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and the great illustrations are a great bonus also! It is an 8 x 11 coffee table style book, that is quite eye catching.

Excellent book 20 Jun. 2001
By Ferdinand Bram - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I enjoyed immensely this book on the celtic mythological creatures (and I still believe in most of 'em!). The artwork was compelling, and the folk stories were excellent. My only complaint was that some of the information was historically inaccurate; however this didn't happen enough to take away from the value of this book.
