I love the poetry of Yeats and although this isn't a book of poetry it was still a fabulous read. (There are some poems in it though).

Yeats and other respected Authors had collected over the years fairy tales from the Irish Peasantry and they were then collated into one book.

It was a nice surprise to find that I hadn't heard of a single fairy tale in this book. This made it so exciting to read that I couldn't put it down and therefore read it nearly in one go.

I like the way there is at the end of some of the chapters, an explanation of how to pronounce some of Celtic words and Names. I had of course heard of the Beansidhe, The FirBolg, the Tuatha de Danaan and the 'Gentry', the Gancanagh, The Leprchauns and the Sidhe.

This was a great little book and even better because it was free. I have to admit that I would have paid the full price for it otherwise.

Great reading and recommended for children and adults alike.

I liked this volume of folktales collected by W.B. Yeats. Tales of fairies and banshees and other strange creatures abound. A must read for anyone interested in all things Irish.
