    One thought on “D'Aulaires' Book of Trolls (New York Review Children's Collection)”

    1. There is some nice humor in this book about trolls. The D'Aulaires draw somewhat from Norse myth, though there are no stories of Norse gods. It is funny because you can just see Biblo going what, as you read it.

    2. I do loves me some folklore and mythology, but the sub-text is occasionally confusing:When an enterprising young man saves a king's twelve princess daughters by killing the troll king (who liked having all twelve of his heads scratched by human princesses), he is rewarded by the king with "half the kingdom and the youngest and prettiest of his daughters for a bride."However, water trolls also like to have their heads scratched:"When a pretty girl came walking along they beseeched her to comb the [...]

    3. Having just watched Trollhunter, I thought this would be a great place to start my troll "research." Hee! After all, it seems to me that folklore is frequently distilled down to a pretty basic level (ok, so as an adult I'm inclined to call it stereotypical) for children to consume. Which is just what I got in this book: all the delightful basics of mountain trolls, forest trolls, trolls with a dozen heads, not to mention the trolls with 500 heads. Heh. Nicely illustrated and filled in with a qui [...]

    4. A well-written, wonderfully illustrated description of each of the types of Norwegian trolls. The descriptions flow together into one long story, ranging from large mountain trolls to the beautiful hulder-maidens. My kids really got into it, and it made a great read aloud.

    5. I had never heard these stories before and they were quite interesting. There was one story about taking the children into the barn to spank out the troll changelings that was concerning. That one (and a few others) were not appropriate for children.

    6. 1. None2. Third grade3. This book has Norse folklore inside. The main point of the book however, is the world of trolls that is shown in Norse folklore. The illustrations make it so the trolls aren’t too scary for children.4. Norse folklore is very different from folklore that I’ve known about. It is a very quirky book and how they describe trolls in tales from the folklore is interesting. I especially like how the stories might not be ideal for children, the illustrations make them a bit fr [...]

    7. Leo says: ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    8. D’Aulaires’ Book of Trolls is a companion book to D’Aulaires’ Book of Norse Myths. Both books have the same dimensions (12" x 9"), which I greatly appreciate for vain shelf placement aesthetics. In this book, we see the nighttime side of Norse mythology, for everyone knows that trolls only come out when the sun goes down. There aren't many specific tales about trolls in this book, but it is more a guide to what trolls are, what they look like, customs, etc.Some of the things I learned in [...]

    9. D’Aulaire’s Book of Trolls is a fun romp through the traditional stories of Nordic Trolls, suitable for children and adults.The illustrations are a delight and are filled with enough details to engage a child’s curiosity and help them to remember specifics from the stories.The stories themselves are quite varied and cover a wide range of Troll folklore. There are some details I would disagree with, but overall quite accurate and at a good comprehension level for my children (aged 7 with a [...]

    10. This was quite a dark book of troll tales, and one tale rolled right into another. I think it could be scary, but some of the illustrations were delightful, and all were interesting. They were done with a stone lithography technique, a early method of reproduction where every four-colour illustration use four slabs of Bavarian limestone that could weigh up to 200 pounds each. In the 1960s, this method was replaced with acetate sheets which closely replicated the briliant colours and the textures [...]

    11. More a guide to everything troll than a collection of tales. The d'Aulaires' storytelling and artwork make just about every topic they choose to take on fun for us readers. Personally, I find the d'Aulaires at their strongest in the realm of mythology, even moreso than their also-famous stabs at history. No surprise, even their histories focus on mythic characters like Washington, Lincoln, Franklin, Leif Erickson, Buffalo Bill, and plenty others. We had a great time reading about mountain trolls [...]

    12. I learned some stuff about trolls. The more heads, the wilder and more fierce they are. They like having these heads scratched by princesses. There are troll variants (?) called hulder maidens that have tails. Don't be caught by these beautiful maidens' wiles and follow them into the hulder kingdom - instead, marry them in a church and their tails will fall off. Then they will help your fortunes by getting the gnomes to steal hay from the neighbors. Since they depicted trolls instead of the Gree [...]

    13. This D'Aulaires' book is not a long collection of stories but rather a narrative description of the different types of trolls. I especially liked the concept of "troll-splinters," which distort trolls' vision of themselves and the world, and perhaps now, they suggest, explain "people everywhere today who see things askew. What is bad looks good to them and what is wrong looks right. They do not know that they have troll-splinters in their eyes and you cannot see them. But you can be very sure th [...]

    14. I did not realize that this was a follow up to the Norse Myths. It is one of the books that I should have read years ago. I liked this, although it is a tiny bit dated. It seems that hulder-maiden get a soul if they marry a mortal man above ground and she lives with them. However if a guy goes to a hulder-maiden and lives with her until he dies, he loses his soul. But I think this would make a good read aloud for older kids, and a great puppet show.

    15. "D' Aulaires Book Trolls is a folklore book that is intended for children ages 5-9. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The illustrations were colorful and even the black and white illustrations were amazing. The book is very adventurous and magical and I think that is what makes this book stand out from other troll stories. It is filled with unusual excitement for all to enjoy. I think this is another book that is good to sit and read as a family. A must read!

    16. This is an interesting book of troll stories from Norway. We borrowed this from our local library as part of a kit with an audiocassette and a small paperback book. The book is rather plain, but we enjoyed listening to Tom Carlin narrate the story.

    17. There are a couple of movies coming out this month about Trolls so I wanted to be up to speed on my Trolldom. The edition I read is from 1972 which is not the one pictured above. Trolls are very complex, varied and dangerous. Beware! This is a charming book because of the illustrations and the stories with are interspersed with wit.

    18. The life of trolls. Rough & tumble, hard & loud, stupid & natural. The troll hags are pretty cool too. Did you know the more heads a troll has the wilder & fearsome it is? Just ponder this- some of these babies have 500 heads.

    19. This was one of our favorite books when we were kids. Apparently the Scandinavians are quite imaginative when it comes to the grotesque and bizarre (though not always frightening; most of the trolls here are quite humorous).

    20. My 9 year old son enjoyed the stories, but he noticed they were much more simplistic than the d'Aulaires' book Greek Myths. This is a companion book to the Norse Myths, which we are reading next.

    21. This is a fantastic book. It has stuck in my memory since it was read to me by the elementary school librarian.

    22. As far as kid's books about myths go, you cannot find better than the D'Aulaires. Just the illustrations alone are worth it, but the myths are told well and keep small minds engaged.
