Two Welsh legends are brought to life for a new audience in this debut publication from Cerys Matthews.

Ghost Bells of the Lowlands (the legend of Cantre'r Gwaelod) relates the story of a gatekeeper who fails to carry out his protective duties one evening, placing the villagers at the mercy of the sea.

Myddfai Magic (the legend of the Maid of Llyn y Fan) narrates the story of Gwyn, a farmer who falls in love with a beautiful girl who emerges from a lake one day.

The legends are lyrically retold, accompanied by stunning images from Fran Evans, making this an ideal publication for children of 5 years and over
