Item Description...
When four children defeat the terrible troll-bird who has terrified their Norwegian valley for years, everyone celebrates in a merry feast.

Publishers Description
One summer's eve Ola, Lina, Sina, and Trina leave their village to gather firewood in the forest, when they're surprised by the hideous call of the terrible troll-bird, a giant rooster who pops up out of the treetops and swoops down to devour their beloved horse Blakken. Little does the terrible troll-bird know that in Ola, Lina, Sina, and Trina he has finally met his match: his terrible days of terrorizing are over. Before long the whole village is celebrating the monster's demise, and even the gnomes and hulder-maidens are coming out of their hiding places in the woods to participate in a great feast. All celebration is cut short, though, with the startling appearance of two monstrous moss-grown trolls even more terrible than the terrible troll-bird himself. Luckily, the children rise to the occasion once more, saving the day before they set out on a splendid new adventure.
Filled with vibrant illustrations and telling a story of childhood ingenuity and bravery, "The Terrible Troll-Bird" is a delightful companion to Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire's more comprehensive books of Norwegian folklore, "D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths" and "D'Aulaires' Book of Trolls. "

Reviews - What do our customers think?
read at least 1000 times   Sep 17, 2008
Have read this book many times to each of our three children, and now it is being read to each of our 5 grandchildren. They all seem to love it, Nils, the hulder-maidens, Blakken, and of course defeating the terrible trolls. It is the first book they request from the pile of books as we curl up on the couch together. (age 3 to age 5, by then it has been read at least 20 times).
