Crafty just loves this book – its shines a beautiful spotlight on the powerful Irish Goddesses that might otherwise be forgotten
Unsung stories from ancient Irish myths re-imagined for nine to twelve-year olds Have you heard of Eithne the supernatural scholar or Fand the shape-shifting eco-warrior? What about Bé Mannair, a gender-fluid spy who challenges an entire army, or Bé Binn, a giantess who gets her own back on her bullies? From mermaids and fashionistas to athletes and farmers, meet goddesses of all shapes and sizes from Ireland’s ancient myths. Stand by their sides as they wield magic, fight monsters, and protect the powerless – and you might discover that you, too, are a force of nature. Note From The Author While many of us grew up learning about Greek and Norse myth, the Irish goddesses were an undiscovered secret.
