E-ffrindiau / Ffenestri / Sgŵp / Cysgod yn y Coed - Lois Arnold
Lois Arnold has written a range of books for Welsh learners at all levels. She writes in southern Welsh.
The first book I read in Welsh was E-ffrindiau. It’s a series of emails between pen-pals (or email pals?) who are both learning Welsh. Its not the most exciting of stories, but what makes it great for learners is that the book starts with really simple beginner Welsh and slowly increases in difficulty as the characters become more proficient in Welsh.
Ffenestri is a collection of short stories covering a wide range of genres. The book is split into Mynediad, Sylfaen and Canolradd sections.
Sgŵp is my favourite Lois Arnold book. It follows the adventures of a junior reporter as she tries to uncover her first big story. Its an interesting story, and funny too. The book is aimed at Sylfaen or Canolradd level.
Cysgod yn y Coed is another collection of short stories, aimed at more proficient readers. Each story has a twist at the end.
