"This book is without doubt the best of Padraic Colum's children's books."

Originally published in 1916, THE KING OF IRELAND'S SON has stood the test of time. It is a collection of Irish tales told by an acclaimed storyteller, and writer Padraic Colum. A collection of myths and sagas that he heard first hand from itinerant storytellers wandering the Irish landscape. THE KING OF IRELAND'S SON has long been part of the third grade curriculum in Waldorf schools worldwide.

"The King of Ireland's Son stepped over the body and went towards the fifth gate....Then, with a clean sweep of his sword he cut the head off the body."

Filled with adventure, magic, sword fighting, Kings and Wizards these stories are as rich and enthralling as any modern story. Parents are encouraged to read the stories out loud to their children. They will soon be drawn in and reading on their own.

This edition includes a glossary of Irish terms, and a brief biography of Padraic Colum. Softcover. 230pages.
