History, myth and legend collide in this full-colour illustrated storybook of the animated feature Brendan and the Secret of Kells. Twelve-year-old Brendan's life in the monastery at Kells is not very exciting until Aidan arrives. Suddenly life is one big adventure. In the forest Brendan is rescued from wolves by Aisling, a mysterious green-eyed girl. In the cave of the Dark One, he risks his life to steal the eye of the serpent god, Crom Cruach. Meanwhile Aidan is keeping a secret that will become Brendan's biggest challenge, and the Vikings get nearer and nearer ...This exciting story is brought to life through stunning visuals and includes a section of facts about the real Book of Kells.
