I received an advance galley of this book through NetGalley.

The author, Kevin Crossley-Holland, mentions at the end that his intent with this collection was to take old tales and reclothe them in clean, bright, direct language. He succeeded. The collection flows between England and Ireland and all around the isles, and includes tales unfamiliar and familiar. His takes are entertaining and feature men and women and fairies and specters. The end of the book was a special delight for a research geek like me: he cites his sources and mentions the specific classic stories he drew from and why and how he changed them. The original stories were published throughout the 19th century and into the very early 20th.

This would be a great book to read aloud to children, but as an adult I found it to be quite enjoyable. ( )
