Children Ages 8+ • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1916

Narrator Gerard Doyle captures the oral tradition of the storyteller in Padraic Colum's Irish folktales so perfectly that the listener will lose all track of time. The principal story follows the King of Ireland's eldest and wildest son, whose quest takes him to far and distant lands. Doyle easily adapts his tone to match each of the colorful characters encountered in the interwoven tales--the wily and deceptive Little Sage of the Mountain; the quiet eloquence of the Enchanter's daughter, Fedelma; and the feisty arrogance of the King of the Cats. Doyle's melodious Irish lilt lends itself so well to storytelling that the production is perfect for bedtime or a road trip. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2015]
