Although parents may be tempted to use Foltales of Scotland as a source of bedtime stories, I would caution them to pre-read the story first. These are authentic folktales.

The stories are a reflection of the places they come from, like Islay, Orkney, the Lowlands, Shetland, and Aberdeen, and like many folk tales, they feature all sorts of fantasy creatures . . . princes and princesses on missions that test their courage, and rewards given to those who are kindhearted and selfless while punishing those who are greedy and selfish.
