"This selection of folk-tales from Brittany by Elsie Masson, vividly illustrated by pen and ink drawings, is an enjoyable read. The usual folklore themes with Celtic influence are present and accounted for; humble peasants, magic livestock, enchanted castles, evil husbands, brave children, star-crossed lovers, and tricky fairies. Particularly the latter. For some reason the Breton fairies seem to have a more hostile, darker edge, than elsewhere in the Celtic region." (Quote from sacred-texts.com)
