As a schoolmaster in South Wales, folklorist W. Jenkyn Thomas was dismayed to find that his students — who took such delight in the fairy stories of other nations — knew nothing at all of their own country's rich heritage of fairy tales. To fill the need for a collection of Welsh fairy tales for young readers, he compiled this definitive treasury.Abounding in phantoms, fairies, witches, magical spells, and other time-honored fairy-tale ingredients, the 83 fascinating stories include "Lady of the Lake," in which a young country boy falls in love with a beautiful girl who agrees to marry him under very strange conditions; "The Adventures of Three Farmers," and "The Fairy Wife," in which fairies outsmart mortals; and a wealth of other fanciful, imaginative tales. Among these are such favorites as "Elidyr’s Sojourn in Fairy-Land," "Pergrin and the Mermaiden," "The Cave of the Young Men of Snowdonia," "Goronwy Tudor and the Witches of Llanddona," "A Strange Otter," "Nansi Llwyd and the Dog of Darkness," "The Bride from the Red Lake," "Lowri Dafydd Earns a Purse of Gold," and many more. Overflowing with charm, whimsy, and authentic Welsh flavor, this stimulating collection is sure to delight not only children but also fairy- and folk-tale lovers of all ages.

Gave this to my teenaged granddaughter. She is a budding animator and is interested in turning our Welsh heritage into animation. As a warning: these ancient tales are full of gruesome punishments! Not for modern children.

This is a very entertaining set of fairy tales. The Welsh spellings are almost impossible to pronounce even with the help the author offers. I was recently in Wales, so it was easier for me than for someone with no first hand experience with the language. However, that in no way detracts from the wonderful stories!!!

Nice compilation of faerie tales. Similar to those told in Ireland, but uniquely Welsh.

This was a birthday gift for a friend who's getting into her Welsh roots. She was really thrilled with it. Nice little addition to the birthday bag at a reasonable price.

Very well received . My son is an artist and said he would get inspiration for his art from this.

I started taking myths and legends more seriously when I realised that most cultures on this planet have a Noah's Flood story that is spookily similar to all the others. As those guys didn't have email or SMS then it could be that there was a world wide event in ancient times that was relayed to future ages through the art of the story teller.
The Welsh Fairy Book is a collection of ancient myths and legends and if you have the kind of open mind that accepts visitors from other worlds with unusual powers, flying vehicles and time warp then there is some fun reading here.

For me though, it is also a handy guide to have around when I am trying to decipher the story in the original language for my Welsh homework.

Robert Wallace(The Would-Be Herbalist on Kindle): A very enjoyable collection of stories-- some are fairy tales proper, others ghost stories and stories involving folklore--divining for future husbands, etc. There are also a few stories concerning early Welsh saints. So it's a nice mix and while some stories are given the build-up and structure of a traditional fairy tale, other stories are presented in a more anecdotal, semi-factual or historical way, somewhat akin to some of the accounts from Evans-Wentz's Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries which was near contemporaneous to the original publication of this work(1907). The inclusion of farmhouses, taverns, weddings, nights of merrymaking, musicians going home late at night from parties--all give this something of a different feel than if all the stories were placed in completely remote times. The writing is terse and purposeful with sometimes an underlying quiet and sly wit. The writing style is surprising unstrained to modern sensibilities, without the undue sentimentalising or moralising that sometimes accompanies these tales. Also the characters and their situations are presented with respect and sympathy rather than with condescension. One thing I would like to add, though: This book is part of the Dover Children's Classics series and was indeed collected by the author to entertain children but I would not advise it for too young a reader as it is not completely light entertainment--for example, in the first story one of the principal characters puts an end to his life and other stories also have dark themes.
I got this book, since I visited the British Isle (Britain & Scotland) in 1984.
