Description
Born and raised in Norway, Lise Lunge-Larsen, known to many as "the Troll Lady," met her first troll at the age of three, and the experience shaped her understanding of the natural world as a place alive and full of mysterious creatures and stories. She has been a storyteller for more than thirty years, and children still beg for "just one more troll story." 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 folklore's 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 Bowen's striking woodcuts are as timeless and rare as the trolls themselves.
