Goodreads | Baarbaara Baaa’s bookshelf: Talesof the Rhymney Valley by Richard Felstead

The stories are quaint and short and really interesting, especially the ones unheard of before, a well written and beautifully illustrated (by John Jones) little read, bringing back well researched tales of old with many a humorous twist.

Thoroughly enjoyable a nice easy read and I was lucky enough to have bought a signed book, funnily the author was also my partners Welsh Teacher in Heol Ddu Comprehensive School in Bargoed many years ago.

There is a beautifully written poem in the back of the book by Peter.K.Morgan who was also his English teacher…reads like a faeiry tale eh….baaaa
