Collected Fairytales

This collection of fairytales is based on the stories told by the author’s great-grandmother. She was a farmer’s wife on a little mountain farm at Tynset, Norway. The stories, written down here in this book, rich in tradition, are made to be read aloud with the whole family. You will find fantastic kings, ferocious trolls, goat herders and wood nymphs, and the pig who wanted to sit at the table for Christmas dinner.
