KIRKUS REVIEW

Others in the series, The Picture Story of Norway, The Picture Story of Hawaii, also illustrated by Ursula Koering, set the pattern of a pleasant, once-over-lightly kind of survey. First comes social orientation with a brief look at the Swedish parliament. Stockholm-old and new- follows, and from there forays are made to the mountains that border on Norway, the northern islands, then to people and their homes, food, sports and trades. Cultural background-Beowulf in olden times, the sculptor Milles today,- the history of Sweden as a gateway to the world, and a closer look at its industries and social systems wind up the list. At the back, a short historical outline aids reference.
