Spellbound Reviews


'Wrought in a compelling way ... An excellent introduction to Irish myth.' School Librarian 'The language used is, as expected, skilful so that the words flow smoothly as the tales are explained in an absorbing way, drawing in the young listener as the stories unfold.' Historical Novel Society 'Whelan's fabulously colourful watercolours are a perfect match for Parkinson's skilful versions of the old tales.' Irish Times 'Lavishly and delightfully illustrated.' 'An enchanting book.' 'Siobhan Parkinson ... is a prolific, versatile and extremely talented writer, who deserves to be much better known in the UK.' Armadillo Enchantment and magic are interwoven in these beautifully told stories, and the scene is wonderfully set by Olwyn Whelan's delicate and intricate illustrations. Parents in Touch 'The perfect introduction to Irish folk tale.' Books for Keeps
