Good stuff!


Nice one!
I think that “Mog, y Gath Anghofus” is great too. I found a website where I was able to download a soundfile of it being read aloud. Alas, I can’t find the site again. Somebody here suggested listening to it at double speed. That’s good too once you are familiar with the normal speed version.


Google isn’t throwing up any useful websites. I wonder if it’s on an audio CD somewhere. Listening would be a good idea.


The company was Dref Wen publishers, but their website seems to have disappeared. :frowning_face:


That’s where I found it. Sad - there were quite a few good children’s books available.


Looks good and I like Michael Rosen


In a couple of writing blogs. A funny one I remember was a parody thread about paranormal detective/romances. Someone started a paragraph full of clichés and people took turns adding to the story.


Why no contraction on “Dyn ni yn…”?


It seems that Dref Wen’s website is back again.


I often find myself scrolling up and down this excellent thread, and I thought that it might be helpful to have a list of all the books mentioned so far. Most, but not all, have favourable reviews. Books are listed in order of appearing in this thread.
