Review

How did the Viking hero Hairy Trousers and the boy known to his tribe as the Prince of Wolves get their names? Where did tinsel come from? How did Lars and the snow bear get rid of Christmas trolls?

The answers to these intriguing curiosities lie in this eclectic and unusual collection of traditional folk tales and legends from wintry places around the world. This lovely book, with papercut style illustrations, also includes an author’s note about the origins of each tale. An ideal Christmas present for a young book lover to curl up with on a winter’s night.
