The first in a series of four titles based on the seasons, nature and folklore, The Lightbringers is a story of hope centring on the notion that the light will always return, even in the darkest of days.
The midwinter solstice provides the focal point for a journey by the little creatures as they seek to return light to earth, but it is a journey that evokes the traditions of the Mari Lwyd walking the villages of Wales and Wassail songs being sung in the orchards. Made up of two key parts, this book contains the story of The Lightbringers and a brief introduction to the myth and legend surrounding the season and festivals of midwinter.
Suitable for readers of all ages.
Karin Celestine lives in a small house in Monmouth Wales. In her garden is a shed and in the shed is another world. The world of Celestine and the Hare. It is a place where kindness, mischief and beauty help people smile. Karin is an artist and author, who creates needle felted animals of charm and character, including the stars of her own delightful stop-motion animations and her series of children’s books published by Graffeg. Her joy in the natural world is also reflected in her sculptural copper pieces which complement her feltwork. Karin runs popular needle felting workshops, inspiring others to find their creative spirit and a membership club called the Tribe of Celestiner Chokliteers where kindness and mischief are the order of the day.
