5.0 out of 5 stars Bendigedig- Excellent, 10 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Tales from the Mabinogion (Paperback)
Beautifully Illustrated and great stories.

I read the 4 stories in the Mabinogion originally in Welsh when I was in primary school. It was one of my favourite books and the pictures fired my imagination and interest in the ancient Celts and civilizations of Britain. Some of the translation from Welsh to English is quite literal so does not flow or read a best it did in Welsh so younger children may not fully appreciate the tales in full. These type of stories are best told from memory...which is what I did with my 5 and 7 year old nephews. I told them a tale each night and showed them the pictures. The loved the story of Bendigeidfran and Branwen best of all- a tragic tale of love, villans, heroes and heroics! Brilliant. If you've never read Mabinogi then you should. It is a classic under rated version of the tales that are similar in character to viking sagas! Hwyl.
