A classic that sparked the illustrious careers of two Caldecott-honored authors and illustrators

This delightfully illustrated book is the enchanting story of a dauntless Norwegian boy who goes skiing one day and has many unusual adventures before returning home. He meets new friends, joins a merry wedding party, encounters a howling dragon, and learns bits of folklore from fishermen in the far north while pulling codfish from the icy waters.

This beautifully illustrated book is at once a true glimpse of life as it once was in Norway and a tribute to Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire’s zest for living. 


"A picture of Norway . . . so complete and vivid that a reader of any age can gain from the book real knowledge and understanding of the country." —New York Times
