Celtic mythology, Arthurian romance, Welsh history--these are just some of the threads woven into the eleven magical tales that make up The Mabinogion. Here are stories full of colorful characters, such as Gwydion the shape-shifter and Math the magician. Dragons, witches, and giants live alongside kings and heroes, and quests of honor, revenge, and love are set against the backdrop of a country struggling to retain its independence.

The Rose and the Ring is one of those special literary treats which happen when a writer for adults turns (in this case) his attention to the world of children. It's a classic fairy tale, told with Thackeray's customary insight into characters.
