Full of interesting stories, great art work and enjoyable read. I pick up this book for a friend who was looking for a copy and she loves it.

Best Celtic Fairy Tales book, IMHO

I collect Celtic Fairy Tales. I have Jacobs, Young, and many more. Usually the books are inappropriate for very young children because of their graphic violence or too-abstract artistry. But Philip manages to take the traditional tales, and make them sound better, shorter, and less violent. And the illustrations are simply breathtaking with the gold-leaf papers and thick, gold-edged paper... the book is vaguely reminisent of the old books (e.g. Book of Kells) in that every page is illustrated in some way -- it's absolutely breathtaking. This is an excellent selection of stories as well.
