Children's Author of the Month

Tracey Corderoy was born and grew up in industrial South Wales and now lives in a hidden valley in Gloucestershire with her husband, two children and an ever-increasing menagerie of devilishly cute but sometimes rather naughty pets! A trained teacher, Tracey has always had a passion for wonderful literature and began writing for children in 2006. Her books include Hubble Bubble, Granny Trouble; The Grunt and The Grouch series about two riotous trolls, and numerous picture books including The Little White Owl. Tracey's head is happily crammed with countless ideas and stories and she's loving the adventures that her characters insist they share.

Atgofion Drwy Ganeuon, Rhywle fel Hyn gan Dafydd Iwan

The Leader: Atgofion Drwy Ganeuon, Rhywle fel Hyn by Dafydd IwanAtgofion Drwy Ganeuon, Rhywle fel Hyn by Dafydd Iwan

Rydym i gyd wedi clywed rhai o ganeuon Dafydd Iwan ers hanner canrif. Mae'r geiriau a'r alawon mor gyfarwydd. Maen't yn rhan o fywyd Cymro gwerth ei halen, eto mae rhywbeth newydd i'w ddysgu am bob can. Trodd rhai o'i ganeuon yn anthemau – "Yma o Hyd" yn enwedig ar Barc y Strade. Mae ei ganeuon yn wleidyddol, gwerin, oesol a yn gyfoes ar yr un pryd. Yn y gyfrol hon mae'n datgelu'r hanesion, rhai adnabyddus, erall llai cyfarwydd. Mae yn onest drwy'r cyfan. Porwch rhwng y penodau a cewch ail fyw'r caneuon a darllen rhwng y llinellau.
