Two Selkie Stories from Scotland

The strange and magical world of the shape-shifting Selkies and is brought to enchanting life in these two fairy tales from Scotland, The Selkie Bride and In the Kingdom of the Seals, hauntingly retold by best-selling author Kate Forsyth and strikingly illustrated by Fiona McDonald.


Further Information

These two stories have mythological origins drawn from Scottish folklore. They are something far more magical than fairy tales. This is due to Kate Forsyth’s insightful and poetic retelling, combined with the beauty of Fiona McDonald’s equally insightful illustrations. These two creators have links to Scottish ancestry. This connecting thread adds a personal and authentic element to the translation.
