Just in, another great review for Margrete Lamond and Ingrid Kallick’s Two Troll Tales from Norway!
Here’s some short extracts: Margret Lamond skilfully retells the two magical tales in this charming picture book displaying her talent as a storyteller….The illustrations by Ingrid Kallick convey the unusual quality of these stories and have a distinctly Scandinavian appearance in the decorative patterns and colours.
