the o'brien book of irish fairy tales and legends

Reviewed in the United States on March 6, 2017, Reviewed in the United States on October 10, 2018, Reviewed in the United States on October 31, 2017, Really beautiful illustrations to accompany these famous & beloved Irish legends. One thing that stood out to me was that the kings in the book did not live in castles, like the ones I read about growing up, but rather in forts. .warranty-twister-container

Legends by author Una Leavy is an excellent collection of folk-tale or if you prefer fairy tale.I could not find that this book had won any awards. #shippingMessageInsideBuyBox_feature_div>.a-letter-space{display:none!important}#shippingMessageInsideBuyBox_feature_div>.a-section{display:inline!important} I would suggest that it is appropriate for

It's so refreshing to read Irish folkore that hasn't been Disney-fied or over-simplified. As I read, even though the names and culture of the book were different, the experience I got from the stories were fairly similar.
