This volume of 28 Swedish fairy-tales represents a careful choice of the best examples of Swedish lore and tales. Infused with the Swedish culture, they are the most colorful and entertaining tales to be found, for the fairy-tales of Scandinavia, Sweden, Denmark and Norway, have a distinct local color of their own. Herein you will find 28 children’s stories like the delightful "Lasse, My Thrall", and "The Princess and the Glass Mountain." Of course there are stories of princesses being rescued from ogres and giants like in the story of “Silverwhite And Lillwacker.” There are also stories of the low-born lad who makes good and becomes a king, like that of “The Mount Of The Golden Queen.” But you can’t have a book of tales from the far Northern realms without a story about a “giant, troll and werewolf”, for this is also the land of Beowulf the Vikings. We could carry on waxing lyrical for a lot longer but will leave the discovery of these wonderfully, magical tales to you and your kin. As such, you are invited to download and read this enchanting volumes of Swedish folk and fairy lore.

Which tempted her to beg him to lend it to her for a dust-brush. An other one jerked his head thrice every time he made a bow. A third was so stupid. When he tried to be genteel. That he kissed her hand and. Lisping. Called her Your most Graciously Gracious Grace. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Fairy Tales From the Swedish of G. Djurklo The interesting and characteristic collection of Swedish Folk and Fairy Tales published by Baron Djurklou nearly twenty years ago, has, strange to say, escaped the attention Of folk-lorists outside the country Of their origin. They are written in the dialect of the Swedish peasantry, to the study of which the author has devoted so much time and labour, and they may therefore have presented diffi culties in the way of translation into other languages. In the present English version of a selection from the tales the translator has tried to retain as far as possible the humorous and colloquial style of the original. The illustrations in the body of the book are by T. Kittelsen and E. Werenskiold, two well known Norwegian artists, and the frontispiece is by.

ONCE upon a time there was a boy called Jolly Calle who was always as happy as happy could be. He was a poor boy and quite alone in the world, for he had lost both his father and mother. If anyone pitied him on account of this misfortune he would answer : " Well, at any rate I had a father and mother once, and I remember them both quite well. I remember being whipped by my father, and my mother wiping away my tears and kissing me. I am quite sure they are both in heaven now, for all the loving care they gave me here on earth, and I ought not to wish my parents back again out of heaven, ought I ? Just think of those who can't remember ever having set eyes on their parents ! You may be sorry for them if you like! " And then Calle would laugh. When it rained Calle was always in the best of spirits. " There is nothing so merry as the rain," he would say. a Look at all the funny little drops sparkling and hopping about, and one gets so nice and wet all over too ! " ...
