Beautiful illustrations, fun stories  May 26, 2007
This little book is filled with amazing, beautiful illustrations and entertaining stories. Anyone interested in Irish culture and folk-lore will enjoy this book. However, while this book is a fun read for older children and adults, the content of one or two of the stories might be a little bit intense for younger children, so be sure to preview the stories before reading it to the little ones. I especially like the pronunciation guide in the front for Irish names and words, which can be very difficult, and the reference page at the end that explains the origins of each story. Also, my edition came with audio c-d's of the stories.
If you don't think taking the Lord's name in vain is a sin....  Nov 23, 2005
I love the pictures and a few of the stories. But I did not like the blasphemy. We feel strongly about our beliefs and this is not something I want to read to my child. I feel it is inappropriate especially in a children's book. I would not have purchased it had I known. The stories in this book are pretty scary for younger children. In one story a mother is thought to have eaten her babies when in fact the mother in law threw them out the window to the wolves. Then the mother in law smears blood on the sleeping mother's face to make the idea of her eating them real. Then the mother is almost burned at the stake, saved, and then the mother in law is burned at the stake. Not a happy bedtime story. My three year old loves most of the pictures, but doesn't ever ask to read it! Beware if you are buying this for younger children. I would not purchase this book again.
An anthology of seven folktales steeped in Irish history  Aug 8, 2004
The collaborative effort of author Malachy Doyle and artist Niamh Sharkey, Tales From Old Ireland is an anthology of seven folktales steeped in Irish history, culture, and tradition. Illustrated with carefree whimsy, they weave myths and legends about ordinary humble folk as surely as remarkable heroes. A pronounciation guide for names and a list of sources for each tale rounds out this excellent and enthusiastically recommended anthology for young readers bridging the transition between picture books and novels.
Great stories, Beautiful illustrations!!!!!!  Dec 24, 2003
Really nicely told stories, with quirky, mesmerizing illustrations. Both author and illustrator are Irish.

Definitely worth buying - for reading AND re-reading!
