Many people grow up learning about Greek and Roman mythology but, of course, many cultures have their stories of heroes/heroines and gods/goddesses. This book compiles many of these stories that are Celtic in origin.
Children who read or have the stories read to them will spend time with giants, fairies, witches, selkies and more. The stories are well told and each ends with a short section of things to think about. The stories are divided into four topics including mischief makers and monstrous fakers, for love alone, landscapes in Celtic folklore and into the wide and wild world. Enjoy these exciting tales from Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Brittany.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
