The Maid of Llyn y Fan
This traditional Welsh story is found in the book of the Physicians of Myddfai. These were a group of doctors from Carmarthenshire who became very famous for their healing skills. This is their foundation myth which links their skills and knowledge to the supernatural realm of the fairy folk.Nelferch is clearly one of the ladies of the lake found particularly in Brittonic (that is to say Welsh, Breton, Cornish myth) stories. Of course the whole of the Isle of Britain was British speaking before the Saxons came so this kind of story can be found anywhere on the island of Britain and is linked to Arthur of course.I enjoyed reading this one because I like fairy tales and I got to speak Welsh.Pob bendith i chwi i gyd, ynte.

Hansel and Gretel by the Brothers Grimm
Hansel and Gretel is a classic fairy story collected in Germany by the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. It is hard to believe this dark story is for children with its witchcraft and cannibalism. Some parts of it are rather scary.
