To her series on favorite tales from many foreign lands, the author now adds a group of seven selections from Norway. Fanciers of folklore may draw a momentary blank if asked to recall some Norwegian stories, but they will nod energetic recognition to such titles as The Three Hilly Goats Gruff, Why the Bear is Stumpy-Tailed, The Lad and the North Wind, all from Norway. Adapted from and retaining the folk quality of the original collection, the stories are told succinctly, a quiet charm replacing the dramatic flamboyance of previous conceptions by other authors. Leonard Weisgard's 3 color illustrations sometimes in full page, more often spotted decoratively, are rendered perceptively in the spirit of the text. First through third graders will derive maximum interest here.
