The Stories In This Volume Are Set On The Nights Of Four Old Irish Festivals They Describe Adventures That Befall After Darkness, Under Stars, And Feature As Well As The Little People, Faeries And The Black Toadstools, The Mysterious Stranger At The Bonfire, And A Cat That Talks I am rereading this book I love how the pictures acually go with the stories and the two languages are a plus if you want to learn irish This is a bilingual book about the extraordinary things happening on the four nights of Imbolc, Bealtine, Lughnasadh, and Samhain.The stories in this edition of the book are written and illustrated by M che l Mac Liamm ir with the full English story coming first then its translation after My only wish was for the english to be on one page and the Irish Gaelic being on the otherbut it is still a great read especially for parents trying to bring up their children as Gaeilge or for adults to improve their Irish Gaelic. The fact that the facing pages tell the story in English on one side, and Irish on the other is helpful if you re not great at reading Irish.
