The 17 stories that make up this unmissable collection, magical, funny and exciting at the same time, were translated and transcribed by 19th century scholars and admirably outline the enchanting atmospheres of Nordic folklore. Each story is accompanied by the vivid illustrations of the Finnish artist Ulla Thynell, who with her unique and unmistakable style manages to evoke all the magic of the Northern Lights and the clarity of the frozen lands of the north. Thus the adventures of dragons and princesses, foxes and woodcutters, trolls that haunt the snowy forests and terrifying monsters that roam the open sea come to life. Among evocative environments and almost mystical adventures, a fascinating reconstruction of the Scandinavian tradition emerges: a perfect gift for fans of Nordic culture and lovers of illustrated classics looking for a comforting winter read.
