This volume of 28 Swedish fairy-tales represents a careful choice of the best examples of Swedish lore and tales. Infused with the Swedish culture, they are the most colorful and entertaining tales to be found, for the fairy-tales of Scandinavia, Sweden, Denmark and Norway, have a distinct local color of their own. Herein you will find 28 children’s stories like the delightful "Lasse, My Thrall", and "The Princess and the Glass Mountain." Of course there are stories of princesses being rescued from ogres and giants like in the story of “Silverwhite And Lillwacker.” There are also stories of the low-born lad who makes good and becomes a king, like that of “The Mount Of The Golden Queen.” But you can’t have a book of tales from the far Northern realms without a story about a “giant, troll and werewolf”, for this is also the land of Beowulf the Vikings. We could carry on waxing lyrical for a lot longer but will leave the discovery of these wonderfully, magical tales to you and your kin. As such, you are invited to download and read this enchanting volumes of Swedish folk and fairy lore.

These 38 Norwegian folk and fairy tales of elemental mountain, forest and sea spirits, have been handed down through the generations by hinds and huntsmen, woodcutters and fisher-folk, who led hard and lonely lives amid primitive surroundings are, perhaps, among the most fascinating the Scandinavian countries have to offer. Not only are they meant to delight children, and this they do not fail to do. “Grown-ups” who also, who take pleasure in a good story, will enjoy this book as well. Here you will find stories which are well told. Readers will enjoy the original legend of “Peer Gynt” as it existed before Ibsen gave it more symbolic meaning. You will also find a glowingly, beautiful picture of an Avalon of the Northern seas described in “The Island of Udröst.” And what could be more human and moving than the tragic “The Player on the Jew’s-Harp,” or none more genuinely entertaining than “The King’s Hares”? The thrill and fascination of black magic and mystery run through such stories as “The Secret Church,” “The Comrade,” and “Lucky Andrew.” In “The Honest Four-Shilling Piece” we have the adventures of a Norse Dick Whittington. “Storm Magic” is one of the most thrilling sea tales, bar none, ever written, but every story included in the volume seems to bring with it the breath of the Norse mountains. One cannot but believe that “The Book of Norwegian Fairy Tales” has an appeal for one and all, since it is a book in which fairy-tales mirror and reflect human yearnings and aspirations, human loves, ambitions and disillusionments, in an imaginatively festooned world. It is the translator’s hope that those who may come to know this book will derive as much pleasure from its reading as it gave him to translate it into English.

The following volume of Swedish folk-tales represents a careful choice, after the best original sources, of those examples of their kind which not only appeared most colorful and entertaining, but also most racially Swedish in their flavor. For the fairy-tales of each of the three Scandinavian countries, Sweden, Denmark and Norway, have a distinct local color of their own. The wealth of material available has made it possible to give due representation to most types of fairy-tales, from the stories of older origin, the tales of giant, troll, and werewolf, to such delightful tales as "Lasse, My Thrall," "The Princess and the Glass Mountain" and "Prince Hat under the Ground" colored with the rich and ornate stylistic garb of medieval chivalric poesy. There has been no attempt to "rewrite" these charming folk-and fairy-tales in the translation.
