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.
