This collection of twenty-five beautiful, sad, gruesome, strange and funny Welsh tales draws on a tradition older than books. Some of these stories are almost as old as the hills where crocks of gold lie hidden. It's the Wales of Arthur and Merlin, poets and princes, wizard and witches, heroes and heroines, faithful hounds and evil tyrants. Here, brave boys overcome giants, young women help to catch monsters, and lovers mostly live happily ever after, just as they do in our dreams. Gillian Clarke, who has adapted this collection from the Welsh of T. Llew Jones, is the National Poet of Wales - and she lives close to the moor where, a hundred years ago, Guto fell asleep. Award-winning illustrator Jac Jones has provided breathtaking illustrations to explore over and over again.
