Tintin mewn Cernyweg – ac yn Gymraeg! – a rhan ola stori
Y Derwyddon yn Gymraeg a Saesneg
A Celtic flavour to Easter from Dalen!
Brand New Tintin in Cornish
and the conclusion of Druids in English
Dalen has four new titles reaching the bookshelves this Easter, including – for the first time ever – Tintin in Cornish and the much anticipated conclusion of the excellent murder-mystery Druids series.
An Ynys Dhu is the Cornish version of the Tintin bestseller L'Ile Noire/The Black Island. For the first time ever, the intrepid reporter speaks the Celtic language of Cornwall on an adventure which takes him to the furthermost parts of Scotland. On a remote, craggy island, Tintin faces up to the legend of the Goedhvil of An Ynys Dhu.
Translated by Mark Trevethan, An Ynys Dhu is available online here for £7.99 plus postage, or ask your local bookshop to order it for you.
Tintin in Welsh
The successful Tintin series in Welsh also continues with the release of Y Bad Rachub, Dafydd Jones' gripping adaptation of Coke en Stock/Red Sea Sharks. This is the tenth Tintin album released in Welsh by Dalen, as our bequiffed hero encounters slavery and piracy on the Red Sea.
The excellent Druids series, penned by Thierry Jigourel and Jean-Luc Istin, and fabulously illustrated by Jacques Lamontage, reaches its conclusion in the newly-released Voyage of Discovery. Published over three volumes, Gwynlan's investigation into the murder of some Dark Age monks takes him on a trail to ensure the survival of the Treasures of the Britons. In a dramatic end to the tale, with a surprisingly unexpected twist, Druids: Voyage of Discovery is available here for £9.99 plus postage, or get it from your local bookstore. ISBN 9781906587390
Druids –Y Derwyddon – in Welsh
You could be really in to the authentic Celtic feel of the Druids series, and fancy investing in the Welsh version of the series. Published in the same large 48 page format as the original French version, Y Derwyddon: Cystudd y Cyfiawn is the concluding part of the series in Welsh.
Y Derwyddon: Cystudd y Cyfiawn is available online here for £6.99 plus postage, or, again, available from your bookshop if you prefer.
