This is a beautiful collection of 20 Celtic Fairy Tales. Many have magical or enchanted animals. Many of the themes are common across traditional literature--be kind to those who ask for help for they often are not what they seem and have the power to reward or punish, if a mysterious person or creature gives extremely explicit instructions about what to do and what to avoid it is always wise to follow those instructions.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670883875, Hardcover)

In fairy tales, as in music, the romantic artistry of the Celts is in full flower. Here, retold much as they were around Celtic peat fires a hundred years ago, are enthralling tales both new and familiar. There's the romantic tale of "Lutey and the Mermaid," "Duffy and the Devil," a comic Cornish take on "Rumpelstiltskin," and "The Black Cat," a haunting version of "Cinderella" that comes from Brittany. 20 tales are included in all, illustrated with the ornate patterns of the Celts and in striking fifth-color gold by renowned illustrator Isabelle Brent.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:08:21 -0400)

An illustrated collection of twenty stories from many Celtic regions, including "The Battle of the Birds, "Finn MacCool and the Scotch Giant," and "The Ship that Went to America."
