Overview

Long a treasure in Norway, the folktales collected by Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe have been acclaimed for their richness of humor, fullness of life, and depth of understanding since they first appeared in translation more than a hundred years ago. The Norwegian folktales, said Jacob Grimm, “surpass nearly all others.”
 
Within these captivating tales we meet witches, trolls, and ogres; sly foxes and great, mysterious bears; beautiful princesses and country-lads-turned-heroes. Collected here in a sparkling contemporary translation by Pat Shaw Iversen and Carl Norman, these tales brim with the matchless vitality and power of their original telling. Included also are the wonderfully evocative original illustrations of Erik Werenskiold and Theodor Kittelsen.

With black-and-white drawings throughout
Part of the Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library 

These tales brim with the matchless vitality of their original telling.

Meet the Author

Boyhood friends Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe discovered an interest in folktales in common, and were inspired by the German Grimm brothers to collect and publish their favorite homeland tales. The first volume of collected Norwegian Folktales was published in 1845, and became exceedingly popular. Asbjørnsen was born in 1812 in Christiana (Oslo) and became a teacher. Moe was born on a farm in Ringerike, and continued his family trade.

    Wonderful for young & old alike

    I borrowed thus book from our public library 4 years ago. I have been in love with it since then. Reading this with my daughter was a delight. Our favorite story was, The Tabby Who Was Such a Glutton. I highly reccomend this book to lovers of folklore & those who enjoy reading to their children. This book is a must for all those who take pleasure in keeping old stories alive, for generations to come.
