Two Norwegian classics, available hitherto in unattractive text book editions, with pious footnotes. Sidsel Longskirt is better known under the title Lizbeth Longfrock, and has long been a favorite with librarians. The stories have somewhat the quality of Heidi -- and give a colorful picture of country life in Norway. Illustrated by the d'Aulaires and newly translated. A real contribution to children's book shelves. Juvenile Literary Guilde.
