The Troll with No Heart In His Body
and Other Tales of Trolls from Norway,
retold by Lise-Lunge-Larsen, illustrated with woodcuts by Betsy Bowen.
As tall as trees and as ancient and rugged as the Norwegian landscape from which they come, trolls are among folklore's most fascinating 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.
