This sounds like a really interesting and exciting venture!
The Mab is a retelling of all eleven stories from the Mabinogion for young people. Each story will be written by an amazing Welsh children’s author, poet or writer. The book will be so beautiful. It’s going to be hardback with full-colour illustrations throughout. Illustration duties are being performed by a brilliant young Welsh artist called Max Low. Each story will appear in English and Welsh and translation duties are being performed by Bethan Gwanas.
What we’re trying to do is foster a love of these incredible stories in a new generation.
The Mab is being crowdfunded so we’re asking people to pre-buy the book before we publish. We will only take money from people’s accounts when we’re at 100% funded. People can buy at different levels so they can order a book, or a signed book, or a book with artwork from Max, or a school visit.
