In this beautiful picture-book one of Europe’s great classics is retold in Irish
Over two thousand years ago the great warrior Ullyses fought at the Siege of Troy. When that awful war came to an end, he sailed off across the sea with his companions on their journey home to Greece. But many dangers still awaited them.
In simple Irish, and with wonderful artwork, this powerful story is introduced to the young reader. This is a book that will awaken the child’s imagination.
Clasaicí Beaga Bídeacha is a collection of six beautifully illustrated picture-books for young readers. The collection comprises of An Odaisé (The Odussey), Romeo agus Juliet, Frankenstein, Oileán an Órchiste (Treasure Island), Don Cíochótae (Don Quixote) agus Camchuairt Ghuilivéir (Gulliver’s Travels).
The Greek poet Homer composed the Odyssey two thousand years ago, and Darach Ó Scolai translated this abridged version for children.
Cabhair ó Dhia chugainn na clasaicí beaga seo agus teacht ag leanaí Gaelacha anois ar shaothar Shakespeare, Homer, Shelley agus a leithéid. Go deimhin táim cinnte go bhfuil an corrdhuine fásta Gaelach fíorshásta chomh maith go bhfuil teacht acu faoi dheireadh ar leagan soléite (cuma cén teanga) den Odaisé!
