From the collection of Peter Christen Asbjornsen and Jorgen Moe; Illustrated by Erik Werenskiold and Theodor Kittelsen; Translated by Pat Shaw and Carl Norman.
Long a treasure in Norway, the folk tales collected here have been acclaimed for their richness of humor, fullness of life, and depth of understanding since they first appeared in translation more than one hundred years ago. Within these captivating tales we meet witches, trolls, and ogres; sly foxes and great, mysterious bears; beautiful princesses and country-lads-turned-heroes. Collected here in a sparkling contemporary translation, these tales brim with the matchless vitality and power of their original telling.
"A handsome edition, eminently satisfying and highly recommended."--Library Journal
