The Silver Cow: a Welsh tale
illustrated by Warwick Hutton
From Wales comes this tale of young Huw, whose lilting harp music enchants the Tylwyth Teg, the magic people of Bearded Lake. Their gift of a silver cow is misused by Huw’s greedy father until the day the Tylwyth Teg seek revenge and Huw gains his freedom.

PRAISE FOR THE SILVER COW
Hutton's grave, spare, muted watercolors—with their soft expanses of Welsh mountain meadows, lake, and sky—nicely suit this grave, measured, quiet tale.
