When Eddie Lenihan's Irish Tales of Mystery and Magic were first published in 2006, Alan Clarke's quirky illustrations perfectly complemented Eddie's take on the stories of Fionn Mac Cumhail and the Fianna. Unavailable for several years and much sought after, these beautifully illustrated stories will now be available in a collection of three gift editions. This edition contains the stories 'Taoscán Mac Liath and the Magic Bees' and 'How the First Blackbird came to Ireland'. These tales of ancient Irish heroes and druids tell of strange and peculiar adventures when creatures of the night walked the earth and magic was everywhere. Stunningly illustrated, these hair-raising stories capture some of that magic.
