Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sirens, trolls, giants, household spirits, and ghosts come to life in this unique collection of voices from Sweden's folkloric past.

Swedish Folktales and Legends is a diverse and representative sampling of stories from Sweden's centuries-old folklore tradition.

Illustrated with woodcuts and drawings throughout
