The King of Ireland's Son
by Padraic Colum

Noted Irish author's selection of favorite tales from the Emerald Isle, brimming with sly humor, whimsy, and imagination. "Fedelma, the Enchanter's Daughter," "When the King of the Cats Came to King Connal's Dominion," "The Town of the Red Castle," "The King of the Land of Mist," and 3 more.

Padraic Colum was born in Longford, Ireland in 1881 and typifies the best of the Irish literary renaissance of the early twentieth century. His books for children have meant good reading to several generations and are as welcome today as they were when first published. He was awarded the Regina Medal by the Catholic Literary Association in 1961 for his contribution to children's literature. He died in 1972.

And who are you? said the King of Ireland's Son. "Aefa is my name," said she, "I am the eldest and the wisest daughter of the Enchanter of the Black Back-lands. My father is preparing a task for you," said she, "and it will be a terrible task, and there will be no one to help you with it, so you will lose your head surely. And what I would advise you to do is to escape out of this country at once."
