Read full description of the books:
This is a solid book of Celtic fairy tales compiled and edited by Joseph Jacobs. Some of the stories are related to bronze-age epics, which means they have more parts in verse, and more named characters than typical fairy tales. Other stories are just what you'd expect in a book of fairy tales.
While probably appropriate for all audiences, most older fairy tale books should be read over once before being shared with children--though I don't think this volume had anything much worse than that guy who married a second wife while looking for his first (and had a kid with her). And many the venomous shoe, if your kids are scared of shoes (I know I find them terrifying). Also, grammar takes a vacation in at least one of the stories.
