review Swedish Folk Tales 103 summary Swedish Folk Tales Erg; The Ring by Helena Nyblom; Stalo and Kauras by PA Lindholm; and The Maiden in the Castle of Rosy Clouds by Harald Ostens. This one is a 35 almost a 4 for me and I confess to being charmed by all 22 of the stories in this collection The book jacket declares the accompanying artwork to be sumptuous and I would not dispute that The details in those images of trolls tomtes princesses and various animals are simply splendid and exuisitely rendered In fact readers will become confused that these creatures must have existed at some time as they peruse the illustrations There isn t a weak story in this collection of Swedish folk tales and fairy tales from nine different authors and readers will enjoy identifying some of the common threads in the stories and seeing how gullible and greedy some humans are as well as how there are occasions when even trolls or fearful kings can have their hearts softened by kindness andor innocence The ideals of noble self sacrifice and loyalty are presented in many of the tales all serving as good examples for many of us today Many of the stories made me smile while others brought a tear to my eye and once again I found myself grateful to the publisher for keeping these stories alive by presenting them to a new audience My only critical comment would be to have a list of terms and their meaning in the back matter since some of the stories written several decades ago contain vocabulary with which many readers will be unfamiliar
