  1. Yet another early 20th c re telling of folk tales, this time the saga of Finn Mac Cool of Ireland One of the biggest challenges of this one is the strange anglicization of Irish names, place names, and mythical beings I have no problem with Fionn Finn but some of the others are very odd Uail Cumhall Cool, Sovan Samhain, Dahna Tuatha de Danaa, Shee Sidhe, etc while others are unchanged Diarmid, Cunnaun It made the slightly familiar fairly difficult to track The language used in the book is that o [...]


  2. This 1930 Newbery Honor Book introduces children to Irish mythology however, the author presents a Christian Anglicized bowdlerized version of these stories, which makes them feel like wonder tales rather than complete account of the Fenian Cycle.This is another book I m glad to finish The language is archaic and tedious I m not sure why all these early Newbery authors thought that talking down to their child readers would sell books It s rough reading and makes the authors seem pompous A kid do [...]


  3. I thought that this book was stupid and boring It is about the legends of old Fiannic Ireland, dating back than 300 years before Christianity came to the island The tales are dumb, and the heroes rely excessively on luck For example, the Tangle Coated horse ran wildly into the ocean carrying 18 people But luckily two youths came up one of which had the talent that he could build a ship in a few seconds and the other that had the talent that they could track anything, even under water How conven [...]


  4. Mi davvero piaciuto leggere questo libro di vecchie leggende irlandesi, certo non sono molto realistiche, i personaggi hanno una fortuna praticamente infinita e vincono tutte le battaglie, ma sono eroi del passato, le loro storie hanno mantenuto acceso l a per il folklore della gente che le ha ascoltate.Oltretutto ogni storia ha una morale, insegna ai giovani come comportarsi e quali sono le qualit che giusto possedere l onest , la bont , la piet , il coraggio e l intelligenza, grazie alle quali [...]


  5. This was written for young people to read of the myths of Ireland I as a senior adult found it just very dry and although there were some tales the characters did not engage me I found I just read the words which did not inspire me The graphics in the book are very nice and the print and the whole book had a nice presentation.


  6. An awesome compilation of Finn tales from Irish folklore, I ran across this book over and over in my local library as a kid never knowing what it was When I finally figured it out, I was too elated to even take the time to kick myself for my long running oversight A wonderful book


  7. Read the full review here newberyandbeyond newbery rShort, mythological stories about ancient Ireland I m not a big fan of myths or short stories, so this book didn t really do it for me.


  8. Very interesting, and the author did a great job with the characters I really enjoyed this one quite a bit than I expected to
