These 35 folk tales have been gathered from Peter Christen Asbj rnsen and J rgen Moe's landmark nineteenth-century collections, acclaimed by Jacob Grimm for their freshness and a fullness that "surpass nearly all others." In this sparkling translation by Pat Shaw and Carl Norman, accompanied by a selection of the magnificent original illustrations of Erik Werenskiold and Theodor Kittelsen, are captivating stories of witches, trolls, and ogres; sly foxes and mysterious bears; beautiful princesses and country lads-turned-heroes that brim with the matchless vitality and power of their original telling.
