The moon spun round: WB Yeats for Children


Here's a review I wrote for Children's Books Ireland (recommended reads) during the summer. Incredible faery magic in this book.
W.B YEATS, NOREEN DOODY (EDITOR, INTRODUCTION) ILLUSTRATION SHONA SHIRLEY MACDONALD
THE MOON SPUN ROUND: WB YEATS FOR CHILDREN
O'BRIEN 2016 (HBK) 64pp €19.99 £14.99 ISBN 13 97818477384
A beguiling collection of Yeats's poems, stories and memories from childhood, steeped in magic and faery lore, this mystical treasure trove is sure to enchant the older reader. MacDonald's stunning compositions perfectly match the imaginative world Yeats conjures and together they form an enticing vision of an Irish landscape. This is a book to be pondered, poured over and visited many times; each time hearing or seeing something afresh in the words and images. [SC]  #februarymonthofthefae
