To me, the gold standard for the retelling of authentic Welsh stories in a modern Wales is Susan Cooper's "Dark is Rising" series. It is to all others what the Harry Potter series is to other youth wizard fantasies.

That said, Nimmo's "Magician Trilogy" is a worthy contender. While Cooper accomplished a grand retelling of the entire Arthur cycle in the context of the modern world, Nimmo attempts the more modest task of reworking a single Welsh story about honor and revenge, as well as bits and pieces of other Welsh tales, into a modern magical fantasy. That's still quite an order, but Nimmo succeeds admirably.

She establishes a compelling young hero, and places him in a world that is very realistic but always seems about to drift into the fantastical. That's the great romance of Wales. She then introduces the bones and the flavor of well known, but ancient, Welsh legends. The old tales aren't necessarily about logic or linear story telling in their original form; they're more about mood and mystery and ambiguity, and this is what Nimmo captures for the young reader. The books are more about "wonder" than "magic", and they have a depth of feeling that is often missing from more pedestrian efforts.

So, well worth a try for a reader who is ready for something a bit more literary and demanding, but still exciting and entertaining.

the snow spider is definately one of my favorite books of all time. when I was reading it, everyone was trying to get me to do something, ANYTHING besides read that book, but nothing anyone did could make me stop. after i read this book, I had to read "orchard of the cresant moon," and "the chesnut soldier." I often think of the snow spider now, and wish that i could be a magician like gwen, and do things like see pictures from a different world. Jenny Nimmo is extremely creative, and i know i will remember this book forever.

Gwyn's 5 gifts from his grandmother, Nain, take Gwyn's imagination to a whole new level. After finding out that he's a witch, he experences new things that he never thought was possible without the gifts. But the most important things that he wants most of all, is to bring his sister back that disappeared 4 years earlier and to bring his family back together. With the help of a magical snow spider named Arainwen he goes to beat the challenges of the mortal world to bring his sister home.

I first read this at some young age long enough ago that I can't remember exactly when, but I remember very well the sense of awe and enchantment of the story. Even now, many many years later, I can pick it up and be just as engrossed even though it's such a short read. Highly recommended for all ages, if you enjoy a magical tale that somehow seems real, along with the very real story of a young boy's emergence into adulthood.

I read this book about eight years ago and I still remember it to this day. I love this book and even though I'm a bit more "grown-up" than I was when I first read it, it is still as fascinating today as it was then.
My 7 year old son, Tony, and I truly enjoyed listening to this series on cd. We listened while we traveled and found it extremely difficult to turn off the story and get out of the vehicle!
