by Lise Lunge-Larson
An entertaining and wonderfully illustrated compendium of troll lore. As tall as trees and as ancient and rugged as the Norwegian landscape from which they come, trolls are some of folklore’s most fascinating creatures. In this collection of nine troll tales, Lise Lunge-Larsen brings a combination of childhood memories and research to the retelling of each story, while Betsy Bowen’s striking woodcuts are as timeless as the trolls themselves.A wonderful book the entire family will enjoy. Woodcut illustrations by Betsy Bowen. Now available in a new jacketed hardcover edition.
