This book now forms part of Three Celtic Tales, which is now available in several eBook formats. For more information, please see

This tale is based on one from the Welsh MABINOGION and is illustrated in black and white by Lynette Gusman. Ceridwen brews up a cauldron of magic to give her misshapen son Avagddu extraordinary wisdom, but the village boy who is employed to stir the cauldron sips it instead and becomes the greatest prophet and bard Wales has ever known, Taliesin. The traditional tale follows the story of Taliesin and does not tell Us what happened to Avagddu. I tell the traditional tale but give additional material following the story of Avagddu after he lost the magic brew.
