Grade 7 Up-- Irish folktales from Sligo near Ben Bulben, retold by a Sligo native. Introduced by excerpts from Yeats's poetry, both text and illustrations are slight--there is little poetry to either language or images. The brevity of the text could be used to advantage with reluctant or poor readers, since the 17 tales are either action-oriented, contain elements of magic, or both. Included is an extensive, episodic tale of the foster brothers Conn and Dara. A book for large folktale collections with a need for multiple variants. --Janice M. Del Negro, Chicago Public Library
