MAREN'S LITTLE OWL by Finn Havrevold
Kirkus Star


Email this review


A Norwegian family--mother, father, Trine, and Maren--bravely endure one economic crisis after another. But when they suddenly inherit a seaside house, even cheerful mother cannot seem to support the difficulties which accompany it. And so it is the children, Trine, the eldest, and Maren, an enterprising little girl with an active fantasy life, who take over, and once and for all win the family its share of fortune and comfort. Maren's felicitous talent for skipping gaily between the real and problematic world and her private world of a talking stuffed owl and a gnome will enchant young readers in this eventful tour of Norway.
