There is a world of enchanting fairy tales and folklore beyond the familiar stories of Andersen, Perrault, and the Brothers Grimm. The tales in these treasuries for readers 8 to adult are adapted from collections published around the turn of the 20th century, reflecting the various cultures where they originated. Each story is set with a full-page color illustration, and the books feature embossed color covers, printed endpapers, and ribbon markers.
The traditional stories of Brittany, Ireland, and the British Isles transport readers to the fantastical world of Celtic folklore—a place where selkies and wyverns jostle with witches and giants, in tales brimming with wit and magic as they tell of perilous quests, true love, and animals that talk. Gathering 16 folktales under the themes Tricksters, The Sea, Quests, and Romance, the book features the colorful silhouette art of English artist Kate Forrester.
