"Earns four stars for its excellent variety of themes, the concise nature of each story, and the fantastic artwork."--Maryanne Obersinner, O'Hara Catholic School, Archdiocese of Portland, Oregon Tales of great giants, clever warriors, jealous queens, and mystical creatures abound in this richly illustrated volume of six traditional Irish legends. The book includes stories about a king with donkey's ears, a moral lesson about riches and possessions involving a brown bull, a tale explaining how the coast of Antrim was formed by a giant, and other tales about treachery, bravery, and honor. Spirited illustrations bring each tale to life, and a pronunciation guide is included to assist with reading the unusual Irish names such as Ailill and Daire Mac Fiachra. Told for hundreds of years, these stories are a rich component of Irish history and will inspire great storytelling as well as a renewed appreciation of folklore and fairy tales.
