All sexual references have been excised, no doubt because of the intended audience of younger children. Webb also removes the moral ambiguity attached to some of the characters and sorts them into two definite categories of Retellings of the Mabinogi 43 hero and villain, thus removing any need for the reader to make moral judgments. Another coffee-table book came out in 1986: Anne Ross's Druids, Gods and Heroes from Celtic Mythology. This was part of a series on mythology published by Peter Lowe.
Instead, the infant Lieu appears (without his twin brother) as if from nowhere: "It happened one day when Gwydion was lying in his bed of a morning, halfawake, half-asleep, that he heard a low cry from the chest he kept at his bed's foot" (67). Noting a resemblance between himself and the baby, Gwydion raises him as a son. When the two of them arrive on Aranrhod's doorstep, the relationship between Gwydion and Aranrhod turns out to be that of lovers rather than brother and sister, and Lieu is the son of the two of them.
When the magician barters for his wife's freedom, he tells Manawydan, "Now she is pregnant. And had she not been pregnant thou wouldst not have been able to overtake her" (Guest 3: 182). Lanier does not allow pregnant mice in his editions, any more than pregnant horses or pregnant women. The reader is not told why this one mouse was slower than the others, but it is such a minor point that it probably never occurs to most readers to wonder about the lack of explanation. In the Second and Third Branches ("Branwen" and "Manawydan"), Lanier makes one other kind of editorial alteration: he changes some of Guest's place names.
