About Book

Book Description
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.

Card catalog description
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."
