Book Review: East o’ the Sun and West o’ the Moon with Other Norwegian Folk Tales, Retold by Gudrun Thorne-Thomsen (Three Stars)
A compendium of Norwegian folk tales: some familiar, some not, published by the Gutenberg Project. Most stories have a shaggy-dog-story format with repetitive iterations numbing the reader’s mind.
Excellent illustrations by Frederick Richardson.
