Format: Hardcover
Boose has pulled together a wonderful collection of stories from the oral tradition all five of the Scandinavian Countries and it is that that makes this collection unique and valuable. It combines the work of the likes of Anderson of Denmark, Asbjornsen of Norway and Djurklou of Sweden as well as other less prolific folklorists.Notation occurs in the Introduction in more narrative form which is a bit hard to access when you are interested in only one of the stories. I would have prefered a more accessable arrangement. The stories have been retained in oral lanquage and are in very tellable form. If you only want one book of tales from these countries or want a place to start this is clearly the book.

Format: Hardcover
Excellent variety of stories. Some parents may find some of the stories too graphic regarding witches and trolls, etc. Some of the stories are just plain fun and the imagery is excellent. A good book to share with children or for recalling stories from a Scandinavian childhood.
