KIRKUS REVIEW

Libraries may already have some of these 20 tales, chosen from the two volumes Yeats edited in 1888 and 1892, but this handsomely illustrated edition, focusing on the mischievous wee folk, is especially appropriate for young people. Lynch's witty, detailed drawings and elegant silhouettes are the perfect complement to the stories' rich language and sense of place. Notes on the stories and on Yeats's sources.
