The Celtic cultures of Ireland, Scotland and Wales are home to some of the richest traditional tales in Europe. Folklorist and author Rosalind Kerven has re-envisaged 16 of them for a new generation. Travel to mysterious Otherworlds inside the hills and below the sea; meet the poet Taliesin and the hero Fionn mac Cumhaill; cheer on Mallie Whuppy as she outwits a fearsome giant, and Kate Crackernuts as she rescues a bewitched prince. Background notes present the source material, analyses of themes, and examples of similar legends from all over Europe.
