Celtic Folk Stories

Author : Peter Snow

ISBN : 9780863157646

Publisher : Floris Books

Pages : 168

Format : Paperback

Description : The Shifty Lad, as his name suggests, had a way with him about escaping from tricky situations. In these delightful and amusing tales of roguery and cunning, we learn about his childhood, how he longed to become a thief, and his career among the villains of the highways and byways.

We learn how he outwitted the Dark Stranger, and saved his own life through the gift of storytelling.

The stories the Shifty Lad tells come from the Celtic cultures of Scotland, Ireland and Wales. But as part of the great tradition of folktales, they are stories about the nature of humankind, stories that touch our feelings and make us laugh.

Older children and adults alike will enjoy the Shifty Lad's spirited charm and this lively collection of Celtic folktales.
