    1. Where would we be as mere mortals without our dreams, anticipation and expectations in our lives And mine were certainly achieved when I went on holiday for a week in Mid Wales two months ago I had two aims, apart from enjoying myself on holiday, of course, and that was to see the Aberystwyth National Library of Wales wonderful location overlooking the university town and the sea and super to browse through the books, although their security was a pain a need for identification, filling in a for [...]

    2. Celtic mythology at it s finest This is an illustrated children s version of the classic Welsh tales hence it is a a sort of digest, but still a great intro to the rich and ancient body of Welsh lit Beguilery, Magic, Sex and Murder abound and all for the kids Plus, the artwork is great by Welsh artist Margaret Jones.Fun facts Many of the characters were originally Welsh gods after centuries of oral tales, Christian monks finally wrote them down, infusing Celtic mythology with a Christian worldvi [...]

    4. I d been curious about Welsh folk tales, so I m glad I read this, but Ifound many of the tales puzzling I couldn t figure out why various people did what they did What happened and how including magic, of course was all fine with me, but the motivations were confusing Still, I liked hearing all the Welsh place names And the illustrations were intruiging, very well done.

    5. This collection of Welsh stories is certainly charming and a great source of enjoyment for any child that enjoys reading On a different note, it was also interesting to see the remarkable similarities that can be found with other stories from around the globe, especially those found in the Thousand and One Night collections.

    6. This could be called an illustrated Readers Digest of the Mabinogion At 88 pages including illustrations which are excellent is a small work Some branches of the Mabinogion are done well if brief, others lack.

    7. Just gorgeous we bought this one an Am Mabinogi, the Gh idhlig edition, at the same time to read to our kids.
