D'Aulaires' Ola

by Ingri & Edgar Parin d'Aulaire.
Ola is the enchanting story of a dauntless Norwegian boy who goes skiing one day and has many unusual adventures before returning home. He meets new friends, joins a merry wedding party, encounters a howling dragon, and learns bits of folklore from fishermen in the far north while pulling codfish from the icy waters
This delightfully illustrated book offers a glimpse of life as it once was in Norway and is a tribute to the zest for living and the strong affection for Norway shared by Inri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire.
