Celebrated Irish author Padraic Colum dazzled audiences with his retellings of old Gaelic myths. In The King of Ireland's Son, he imbues seven favorite tales from the Emerald Isle with sly humor, whimsy, and imagination. Stories include "Fedelma, the Enchanter's Daughter", "When the King of the Cats Came to King Connal's Dominion", "The Sword of Light", "The Town of the Red Castle", "The King of the Land of Mist", "The House of Crom Duv", and "The Spae-Woman". It's hours of entertainment for the whole family!
I read it in second grade. And now going into seventh grade I'm reading it again and see how good a book it is.I'm upsets with Ireland and this is like an amazing Irish story
A grand storyteller for a grand story. A bit too gruesome at times for my children, but I enjoyed it. The language was beautiful and the narrator masterful.
I loved the story and Gerard Doyle did a great job narrating it. It was very entertaining.
