Review

The tales are beautifully told, in a way that’s a pleasure to read aloud … the illustrations are stunning – gorgeous and lush. It’s the sort of book that should work equally well for an independent reader or as a read-aloud book for younger children … a lovely book to have in the house, and would definitely be a great present for friends and relations overseas who might like a little Irish lore on their bookshelves
