I've been looking for the edition of this book that I bought in Wales in 1983 after a stunning, larger-than- life outdoor performance of the Mabinogian. I stiil remember the amazing period costumes, the Celtic music written especially for the show, and the real Welsh horses in the production. I missed my book after I gave it to a friend a while back. This is a somewhat shorter version. Nonetheless, the tales are wonderfully told and the illustrations by Margaret Jones are gorgeous, the best intricate, detailed, and evocative I have ever seen in my sixty-one years.

Loved this book as a child. Thought I lost it so I got another copy. Then promptly found my original. But plan on giving this one to my grandson!

Great retelling of classic Welsh mythology combined with amazing and profuse illustrations throughout. A bargain!

We used this book as part of my daughter's 5th-grade classical homeschool curriculum, per the recommendation found in The Latin-Centered Curriculum. I wanted to warn others that the subject matter, which includes rape, gender transformations and incest, is somewhat mature for fifth grade, and the illustrations are grapic and include a nude woman. Parents who are planning to use this book may find it helpful to be warned about this content in advance. I certainly would have!

Margaret Jones's watercolors add to it immesurably. (...)
