One of my friends
tells me that you, little reader, will not like these old, old
tales; another says they are too sad for you, and yet another asks
what the stories are meant to teach.
Now I, for my part, think you will like these Celtic Tales very much
indeed. It is true they are sad, but you do not always want to be
amused. And I have not told the stories for the sake of anything
they may teach, but because of their sheer beauty, and I expect you
to enjoy them as hundreds and hundreds of Irish and Scottish
children have already enjoyed them—without knowing or wondering why.
