Fantasy Friday: Spellbound – Tales of Enchantment from Ancient Ireland
Welcome back to Fantasy Friday!
Today I am recommending a delightfully written and illustrated children’s book from Celtic mythology by Siobhán Parkinson and Olwyn Whelan respectively.
Why I love this book: These eight short stories are sure to enliven the reading time of any lad or lass lucky enough to have these read to them by their favorite story-teller, whether that be mum, grandfather, aunt or anyone in between, who will enjoy the tales just as much. I can already hear myself reading some to a great-nephew or two. In here, you meet people turned into animals, gallantry rewarded by love, and adventures galore! The stories included are: “Butterfly Girl”, “The Children of Lir”, “Labhra with the Horse’s Ears”, “The Enchanted Birds”, “Cu Chulainn and Emer”, “The Enchanted Deer”, “The Land Under the Waves” and “Oisin in Tír na nÓg” and they are accompanied by whimsical art which are just as fun as the stories. A useful pronunciation guide to names is in back.
Interested? Get this book today!
