The Silver Cow: A Welsh Tale Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Wales comes this tale of young Huw, whose lilting harp music enchants Tylwyth Teg, the magic people of Bearded Lake. andlt;BRandgt;From the depths of the black lake comes the gift of a beautiful silver cow; and the cow is magic, for its milk is three times as rich as the milk of an ordinary cow, and she gives three times as much. andlt;BRandgt;Huw's father is a selfish and greedy man, and his wealth makes him greedier than ever. Huw tries to make his father see the magic, but he scoffs at Tylwyth Teg...until they seek their revenge. andlt;BRandgt;Told with a rhythm that evokes the Welsh language, Susan Cooper has brought new life to this ancient tale. Warwick Hutton's evocative illustrations capture the magic of this fateful story.

Synopsis:

The father of a young Welsh boy gifted with a magic cow manages to destroy all the good things the cow has brought to their lives.
