Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4^-8. There's a mix of the almost familiar and nicely exotic in this collection, which is lavishly illustrated with a glowing full-page painting for each tale and Celtic motifs on every page. The 20 stories originate in Cornwall, Brittany, and the Isle of Man, as well as Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. The Irish "Fair, Brown, and Trembling" is a twist on the Cinderella story; Cornwall's "Duffy and the Devil" is patterned after Rumpelstiltskin: and "Rory the Fox" from Scotland is in a class with Anansi stories. Some tales are long, with lots of tasks to be performed before good will out; others slip by in a page or two. In "The King and the Workman's Daughter," a young girl saves her Da, outsmarts and marries the king, and then saves herself and her child from the king's rage with the help of a prenuptial agreement. Philip has produced many fine collections of tales from many sources: this adds yet another string to his bow. --GraceAnne A. DeCandido"
