“I love you right up to the moon — and back.” The cherished story of Little and Big Nutbrown Hare as they playfully vie to express their love for each other has been a favorite of children around the globe for nearly twenty years. Now young listeners have a chance to hear the story read in Irish, in a beautifully designed midi hardcover edition that will have them saying “again!”— or is that “arís!” ?
Ogham is the earliest written form of Primitive Irish, the oldest of the Gaelic languages. Ogham was first used in Ireland and parts of England, Scotland and Wales between the 2nd and 6th centuries. Though its actual origins remain a mystery today, it is believed the Celts desired a cryptic alphabet that could not be deciphered by Roman Britain.
Represented as a series of perpendicular and intersecting lines, this ancient script is thought to be influenced by the Latin alphabet using 20 characters. It is most commonly written vertically and is read from bottom to top. When presented horizontally, it is read from left to right.
