Cuilionn Best book you ever read. (242* d) RE: Best book you ever read. 08 Jul 04


Tae reward masel for a few months o haird "responsible grown-up type" wairk, Ah went tae the local library an ransacked the sae-called "juvenile" section for Celtic folklore-inspired fiction.

Twa verra satisfyin results: Nancy Bond's "A String in the Harp" (Welsh history/folklore, ISBN 0-689-80445-8) and Franny Billingsley's "The Folk Keeper" (Child Ballad-influenced, complete wi selkies & things that gae bump in the nicht, ISBN 0-689-82876-4).

Ah suid alsae recommend the "Green Knowe" buiks by Lucy Boston, (English history & folklore) & onythin by Jane Yolen, especially her short-story collections sic as "The Moon Ribbon" & "The Girl Who Cried Flowers."

Wi that, Ah'm aff tae the library aince mair!
