Tales for the Telling
The Irish are renowned tellers of tales and these twelve enchanting stories of ancient magic, daring deeds, dashing heroes and mythical creatures sparkle with the wit, nonsense and naughtiness of Edna O’Brien’s beautifully crafted storytelling.
Tales for the Telling features traditional Irish folk and fairy tales, including ‘The Magic Apples’ ‘The Swan Bride’, ‘Paddy the Piper’ and ‘Two Giants.’ O’Brien’s giants, leprechauns, princesses and sorcerers are all brought beautifully to life by celebrated illustrator Michael Foreman, whose vigorous, colourful art heightens the drama of the stories while also adding to the magic and charm of this outstanding collection.
