Dublin Folk Tales for Children is full of imagination, with stories specially selected for the enjoyment of 7- to 11-year-old readers. These tales are reshaped and created by writer and storyteller Órla Mc Govern, and illustrated by Gala Tomasso. They are made to be read, told, and passed on. Inside you’ll find tales like ‘Filou, Filou’, ‘G’wan Oura Dat’ and ‘The Two Trees’, and each dances off the page with magic and adventure.
