    1. I bought this book on last month and since there weren t really any reviews I thought that it might be a collection of different sorts of Scottish folklore and the title was just referencing one particular story In reality, the book is actually strictly tales about the seal folk and is utterly charming The way it s written is or less how the stories were actually told in person, which may annoy some people, but I loved since it added to the experience in a way All the stories all have a similar [...]


    2. I got this through my library s InterLibrary Loan, which is a wonderful way to access all collections across the state That s how I can get obscure titles that are moldering away in some university library up in the northern part of the state It is wonderful This is for research for my novel which is set in Scotland Toying with the idea of having one of the characters be a selkie But then, hmmm Not sure if it would fit These are folklore collected by a man who went around Scotland and listened t [...]

    4. For grades 4 and up, ages 9 and upReview A 14 story collection of Scottish folk tales from the Orkney and Shetland islands off the northern tip of Scotland featuring silkies, the seal people who can take human shape May be a little tough for younger readers, but may become a family favorite for reading aloud.


    5.

    6. Really enjoyed this, especially because the stories had not been restructured they maintained their original structures as folk tales, and didn t seem to have been rewritten into short stories Spoiler alert when in doubt, it s generally a selkie.




    7. Great folk tales I first became enad of selkie tales before a trip to Scotland This book is a great collection for those interested in these types of folk tales.
