An entertaining and wonderfully illustrated compendium of troll lore. What are trolls and why do children love them so much? As tall as trees and as ancient and rugged as the Norwegian landscape from which they come, trolls are some of folkloreGÇÖs most fascinating and varied creatures. In this collection of nine troll tales, Lunge-Larsen brings a combination of childhood memories and careful research to the retelling of each story, while Betsy BowenGÇÖs striking woodcuts are as timeless
and rare as the trolls themselves.
