    Bought as a graduation gift for my friends Absolutely stunning illustrations and beautiful stories Definitely appropriate to read to small children but i absolutely adored the stories as an adult too Really sturdy hardback books and great quality paper I m going to buy as gifts for nieces and nephews.

    Although Theresa Breslin s An Illustrated Treasury of Scottish Mythical Creatures begins with the tale of the Loch Ness Monster, this fine collection of Scottish stories expands the reader s world through ten additional stories These include the Story of the Giant s Causeway, a geographic wonder and UNESCO World Heritage Site that is breathtaking, and one having a story that is fun for readers Ms Breslin s outstanding writing brings the stories to life in a fascinating manner I liked that the narratives were presented without an attempt to imitate the Scottish brogue but also without sacrificing the cultural aspects of Scotland.Kate Leiper s illustrations are, in themselves, reason to purchase this book Exquisitely drawn and colored with soft pastel like colors, the pictures are detailed and have the depth and dimension often missing in current illustrated volumes The full page illustrations are worthy of framing Adults may appreciate the sophisticated artwork than young readers, but even younger readers will find it marvelous While this volume is titled Illustrated purchasers should be aware that every page does not contain an illustration and that some illustrations do not depict an entire scene, but leave room for imagination.A Glossary of terms specific to Scotland and its cultural heritage concludes An Illustrated Treasury of Scottish Mythical Creatures This is extremely helpful when explaining a story to youngsters.Theresa Breslin has written a book that will engage readers of all ages While it is targeted at readers between the ages of six and twelve years old, it may not be as compelling for those readers as it will be for teens and adults who love myths and fantasy This book is appropriate as a read aloud for mature preschoolers and their older siblings toddlers may not pay attention to the longer stories since they do not include plentiful illustrations This is a beautiful book that will be an excellent addition to your child grandchild s library or to your own
