    1. This is a wonderful collection of stories from Norway about Trolls and the people who outsmart them. The comments from the author are great and the bits of Norwegian sprinkled throughout the book add a bit of fun, too. And the woodcut illustrations are fabulous - they go perfectly with the stories.I love the ending to each story: Snip, snapp, snute; Her er eventyret ute! Snip, snap, snout; This tale's told out!

    2. There's nothing like a creepy, hairy, enormous monster to scare the bejeebers out of a reader. Trolls were the monster of choice in my home with our Norwegian-American heritage. Trolls were ferocious and liked to eat children. They could have multiple heads, but that didn't equate into more brain power. More like brain drain. They argued with each other until they gave each other headaches. According to the folk tales, they liked to kidnap princesses and hold them captive so they would rub their [...]

    3. This was an awesome collection of troll stories, most of which I would love to tell. My favorites were "The Eating Competition", "Butterball", "The Boy who became a lion, a falcon, and an ant", "The Boy and the North Wind" and, of course, "The Troll with no Heart in his body". I remember playing Billy Goats Gruff as a child where a parent stood under the playground bridge and pretended to be a troll, lol. A lot of these tales have some pretty serious violence, so know your audience I guess. A tr [...]

    4. Tired of arch hipster tripe masquerading as children's books? Sick of celebrity "I'm So Pretty" self-esteem fables? Had enough of ironic fairy tales for children who don't know there's a serious one underneath? Or maybe you've decided you'd just as soon burn Dora at the stake (el poste! The stake!El poste!). This is for you and your children. They're good tales well told; there's an excellent sense of the grammar of folk tales, it's literate, the language hits the mark. The illustrations are als [...]

    6. This book needs to be edited - quite a few typos. Otherwise, the stories were super fun and the pictures were nice too. As far as fairy tales go, I really like how proactive the heroes of the Scandinavian tales are. *This book is great, but pales in comparison to Swedish Folk Tales by John Bauer and Holger Lundburgh.

    7. Part of my collection of Norwegian fairy tales and myths. Well written as the author uses spare language that she has recalled from her childhood giving the story line more authenticity. It is also beautifully illustrated with woodcuts which adds to it greatly.

    8. This collection of troll stories is wonderfully creepy and somehow the perfect cozy winter evening read.

    9. We read this in preparation for a trip to Norway, and fell in love with the stories. The author is a great story-teller, engaging and exciting every step of the way. I'd highly recommend!

    10. Summarize the bookThis book is a collection of Norwegian folktales about trolls and is illustrated with beautiful, full-page color woodblock prints by Betsy Bowen. The book includes nine traditional stories each of which begins with a brief explanation of why the author chose that particular story or how she came to it or some other little detail, and ends with the phrase, "snip, snap, snute her er eventyret ute!" or "snip, snap, snout, this tale is told out!" The end of each story also includes [...]

    11. The Troll With No Heart in His Body is a compilation of nine troll tales from Norway compiled and re-told by author Lisa Lunge-Larsen. In addition to the tale the book is named after, you will also see stories such as "Butterball," "The Boy and the North Wind," and the well known/personal favorite "The Three Billy Goats Gruff." The book begins with a note from the author, which includes the importance of folk tales, childhood memories of these Norse tales, and fifteen lessons she learned from th [...]

    12. Personal Thoughts/Synopsis:A great collection of nine Norwegian troll tales (a popular character of Scandinavian folk literature) originally gathered by Peter Christian Asbjornsen and Jorgen Moe . This collection has a few adult words that will need to be substituted if read aloud to children. A great way to learn about stories in other cultures other than our own (eg. my own American culture). The illustrations are not that great but could still have some value. Classroom uses: (Grades 2-4)-cre [...]

    13. This is a collection of folk tales from Norway. It is well written (often folk tales can be a little stale in their actual literary merit) and is accompanied by effective woodcut illustrations (by Betsy Bowen). The stories range from more well known tales, such as 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff,' to intriguingly named stories like 'The Boy who became a Lion, a Falcon and an Ant.' Could link into history (nordic) or a geography project about scandinavia, or just creatively inspire a class with unus [...]

    14. I enjoyed these fairy tales along with the accompanying wood block illustrations and will put it on the folktale shelf for the 'Lil Nibblet when he/she arrives. The imagination finds itself high in the Norwegian mountains of yesteryear with all sorts of characters emerging from caves and from under bridges to cause problems for the local human and animal folk.

    15. A great little collection of traditional tales, set alongside excellent woodcut- and stencil-style illustrations and academic notes cleverly disguised as storyteller's banter. Most excellent.
