This beautifully illustrated story is an adaptation of the Welsh legend of Cantre'r Gwaelod, the lost area of Wales which disappeared beneath the sea.
This drowned land was once a pleasant and prosperous kingdom, its low-lying fields protected from the waves by a high sea wall.
But only Mererid, the storm child, knows that the tide-gates are failing and the next storm will breach the wall.
As clouds and ravens gather overhead, she must race to save her friends andthe kingdom before it's too late... TreeTops Greatest Stories offers children some of the world's best-loved tales in a collection of timeless classics.
