Publisher Comments:

Epic battles, clashed between the underworld and the real word, love, war, and death-these are just a few of the adventures that come to pass in 101 Read-Aloud Celtic Myths and Legends. Pure enchantment, these myths and legends are storytelling at its best, bringing to life the magical literary tradition of the Celts.

The Celts, who once occupied the whole of Europe, are renowned for their custom of passing stories down from generation to generation. Drawn from Ireland, Wales, England, Scotland, Brittany, Cornwall and the Isle of Man, these myths and legends-including the beloved tales from King Arthur's Round table-convey the Celtic wit, wisdom and love of words. From the classic tales The Children of Lir, Angus Og and the Swan, The Miller and the duck, The Curse of the Kelpie, to the traditional stories of the Tuatha De Canann and the adventures of Finn Mac Cool, these ancient tales are brimming with the magic and wonder of the Celtic world. Each story has been faithfully adapted from the original and can be read in ten minutes or less-ideal for bedtime story telling.

The perfect introduction to the richness of the Celtic literary tradition, One-Hundred-and-One Read Aloud Celtic Myths and Legends will delight and enchant readers of all ages.
