Tales of the Elves
Margaux brought this back for us from one of her trips to Iceland. Madeleine and I love folk/fairy tales and now it's Charlotte's turn! She thoroughly enjoyed reading this with me at bedtime (it took a couple days). And she really loved the pictures (they are quite remarkable!). I was surprised there weren't more troll stories since those creatures inhabit Scandinavian tales pretty heavily and I thought there might be some similarities. The story of "Queen Bothildur" was my favorite- mostly because I liked pronouncing the Icelandic names.
I have one husband, three children, two cats and a house full of too many books to count. I love to read, ride my bike, bake, develop my own photographs, and I've been known to neglect all housework to play with my kids.
