Recommends it for: kids/people new to the stories
This is a good primer to the most famous Celtic stories - the Tain, Fionn, the Mabinogion, some other stories - and the illustrations are really very lovely.

It was a very extensive Celtic myth compendium. At times I was intrigued at the mythical tales (ones like Macha). But I feel like the book jumped a great deal from certain time periods rather than build up fully from one lineage to another (other than in the land's founding). A bit more could have been told about the Tuatha Dé Danann and the Celtic god pantheon. Nonetheless I was happy to hear about some of the stories, and the Celts' thoughts on certain animals.

Recommends it for: Young teens and up.
This extensively and superbly illustrated book is in the children's section of my local library. It makes for a terrific introduction to Celtic folklore and religion for people of any age. The author states that the Gods of the old ways, such as Lugh Long Arm, have not really vanished, but are waiting to be rediscovered. You can do just that with this book as a starting point.
