Recommended to Lara by: Jodi Bolen
I enjoyed this quite a bit, but I felt like these stories could have really used some context. There isn't anything to indicate why these particular tales were chosen, or what the history behind them might be, or why they're important, or...anything at all, really. I just feel like this collection really needed that. I think I'll look for something that goes a little more into the hows and whys and wheres of things.

I've read this off and on for the last year and finally finished it today. The tales are wonderful and I enjoyed most of them thoroughly. I love reading myths, legends, and the like and haven't read too many from Ireland, so it was really entertaining to me. I highly recommend this small selection of tales!
Silly, short & sweet. Curious, how long have these fairytales been around?
