WITH it being the Urdd’s centenary year, it is hard to believe that Mr Urdd doesn’t have a book telling his story – that is until now!

Anturiaethau Mistar Urdd by Mared Llwyd is aimed at children aged between seven and 11 years.

Y Lolfa publishers have worked with the Urdd to bring the lovable Mistar Urdd character to life and show what the Urdd does and has to offer as a youth organisation.

The graphic novel includes three cartoon stories illustrated by Sioned Medi Evans.

There are three stories in the book.


Denbighshire Free Press:


‘Mistar Urdd a’r Allwedd Goll’ (Mr Urdd and the lost key) sees Mr Urdd camping at the Urdd Eisteddfod, but he somehow manages to lose the key to his bike lock!

While trying to retrace his movements during the week, Mr Urdd shows how much fun there is to be had at the Eisteddfod.

In ‘Mistar Urdd yn Llangrannog’ (Mr Urdd in Llangrannog) he helps the children who are staying there, including Ianto who is staying away from home for the first time and is longing for his parents.

‘Mistar Urdd yng Nglan-llyn’ (Mr Urdd in Glan-llyn) sees Mr Urdd help the children who are staying there, including Elen who is scared of going on Llyn Tegid.

There are also interesting facts about the Urdd Eisteddfod, and both Llangrannog and Glan-llyn residential centres.

The Urdd has given a copy of the book to the pupils of Ysgol Pentrecelyn as a prize for winning this year’s school decoration competition in Denbighshire.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Adra housing association, all year five pupils in Denbighshire will also receive a copy of the book.
