Fandoms: The 100 (TV), Pangur Bán Series - Fay Sampson. Teen And Up Audiences. Pangur is a poor storyteller, because he tends to get distracted or bored halfway through, but he does have some good tales. He tells Bellamy all about the Welsh witches who bred him to carry a curse for them, and Niall, the monk who rescued him, and Princess Finnglas, who took him on adventures, and how Pangur finally wound up in an abbey in East Anglia. He's not sure how much of it is bullshit, but when he asks Pangur how old he is, the cat just shakes his head and says he doesn't know.

Pangur Bán" is an Old Irish poem, written about the 9th century at or around Reichenau Abbey. It was written by an Irish monk, and is about his cat. Pangur Bán, 'White Pangur', is the cat's name, Pangur meaning 'a fuller'. Although the poem is anonymous, it bears similarities to the poetry of Sedulius Scottus, prompting speculation that Sedulius is the author. In eight verses of four lines each, the author compares the cat's happy hunting with his own scholarly pursuits.

I appreciated Fay Sherman's use of Ancient Irish beliefs and traditions. The narrative moves a little slowly.
But it would still be a good read on a lazy summer afternoon, drowsing and reading on the screened porch.

Pangur Ban is named for a cat described by a young monk who was an illustrator and scribe in a medieval monastery. This charming series of books follows the white cat's adventures in Celtic British Isles.

This is a prequel and is somewhat unrealistic in that a kitten not old enough to be weaned, or barely weaned, is running around doing all kinds of things. But it's a fantasy. The kit is born in a witches' cave in Wales just as some monks arrive with a young nun to rebuild a monastery destroyed by Vikings. Niall is among the group and he first meets the kit as a hare hiding from a hound. Because the kit is under a spell making him a shape shifter, just as the witches shift shape. The power struggle between the angered old forces and the new Christian ways is played out by the characters.

We don't get a good impression of the witches, who were in most cases just herb-users and midwives, but there is lots of nice nature description including life from the perspective of a trout or hare. Very exciting and can be scary for young readers.
