    "He lives in the castle that lies East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and thither(there) you’ll come, late or never..."
    Reading this didn't feel refreshing. I thought changing the writer would get me something new. And new it was, but not upto extent I would have loved. It seems like a very loose mixture of Beauty & The Beast and Cinderella.
    Regardless, I liked it even though it's little lengthy for the plot. But not a bad read at all. And worth reading for fairytale lovers. ^^

    Dating back to 1910, this nordic tale was translated by Sir George Webbee Dasent. In this story, you will find likeness to Beauty and the Beast and also to Cupid and Psyche.

    In the forest lives a poor couple with many children. The youngest daughter is by far the most beautiful. As the winds and the snow shake the cottage, bringing additional cold winds, at night a large white bear appears to the peasant and asks for his youngest daughter. In return, the peasant and his family will be very rich and want for nothing.

    She is whisked off to a beautiful castle while her parents also live way beyond what they had ever imagined. In reality, the white bear is a man who lies beside the daughter at night. She never sees him.

    She is very homesick and asks the bear to allow her to visit her family. Her wish is granted with the condition that she will never be alone with her mother who will attempt to mislead her daughter. When the mother tells the daughter to light a candle so that she may see what is sharing her bed at night, the daughter returns to the castle and follows her mother's instructions.

    The daughter sees a most beautiful price, spilling three drops of melted wax on him. Upon his awakening, he explains that if she had only waited one full year, the curse placed upon him by the trolls would have been broken.

    Now, all return to the original state of poverty and the handsome man must marry a very ugly troll who has a long crocked nose. Transported to the castle far, far away, located east of the sun and west of the moon, he must accept his fate.

    Searching for her beloved handsome man, she must now journey far, far away to a destination near impossible to find. Soliciting help from old women she finds along the way, she is given gifts of a golden items -- an apple, a carding comb and a spinning wheel.

    Taking these items with her, she must obtain help for the East Wind, the stronger West Wind and then the more powerful South and finally, the North Wind.

    When she arrives and seeks access to the castle, the horrific troll princess refuses. Gradually, the daughter gives her items, one by one, to the troll princess. One night, the handsome man does not drink the poison sleeping potion given to him be the troll lady. And, discovering that the beautiful lady has sacrificed and steadily made the trek to find him, he tells her that the only thing that can save him from his fate of marriage to the troll lady, is that he will marry any one who can wash away the three drops of melted wax.

    Alas, the troll princess is not successful, but the beautiful daughter is able to clean the shirt, thereby breaking the spell. And, stealing all goods and money from the castle, they impoverished family, the beautiful daughter and the handsome man escape from the castle that was located East of the Sun and West of the Moon.

    This is a book I will purchase and add to my special library of illustrated books. The illustrations are incredibly beautiful, and the tale is magical.

    The majority of the stories in this book can be summed up as such: A lad named Halvor or Boots ventures out and comes across a princess or three princesses guarded by a troll or three trolls, who are all defeated by Halvor/Boots with a sword he has to drink a potion to use, and as a reward for saving the princess(es) he gets to marry her or one of his choosing, and they live happily for some time until one or the other wants to go back home and that’s fine but “only if you follow these rules while you’re/I’m gone” which are always broken, and the princesses have to return to their homeland or decide to abandon Halvor/Boots, but Halvor/Boots is so in love that he searches to all ends of the earth until he finds the princess(es) and she/they are so happy to see him again that all is well and “if they are not done feasting, why they are still at it”

    What a delightful little fairy tale! This is my first time reading this fairy tale classic by Peter Christen Asbjornsen and I was not disappointed. I did find myself enjoying it quite a bit. I'll be honest, the main heroine got on my nerves. At first, I though she was a bit shallow but seeing all the trouble she went to find the prince, it really shows how caring and deep of a character she really is. I am in awe at how this fairy tale ended. It was beautiful and the message even better! To think I wasn't going to read it at first because of how the heroine was annoying. However, now I see that was the point. It's to show how she grew by meeting this prince and striving for what she wanted most! Truly amazing! The prince was very gentle and even though he took (Not really. He asked permission from her father) her from her home, he did whatever he could to make her happy and comfortable. The trolls were disgusting creatures. No wonder the prince didn't want anything to do with them! It's a great fairy tale and I thank Asbjornsen greatly!

    Speaking of, I wish I could read Norwegian because then I can comment of Asbjornsen's writing style. But, alas, I cannot. I read the English version and, at times, it felt a little choppy the translation. But, all-in-all, it was still a very great read. If you like fairy tales with a romantic element and religious undertones then I highly recommend you pick this one up! It's not the greatest fairy tale ever told. I feel like there are a lot better ones out there, but it's still worth the read. I first picked this one up so that I could read Ice by Sarah Beth Durst. I wanted to see what the main story was originally like then check out Durst's book. Now that I have, I can look forward to reading a novel adaptation of the tale. I'm sure it's going to be just as great. Well, I can't say much more about fairy tale because I'll give it away. Just know it's awesome and I think you should definitely go pick it up some time!

    This book is a reproduction of the one issued in the 1920s with illustrations by Kay Nielson. It might possibly be the most beautiful book I own. The pages are so thick, they are almost printed on card stock rather than paper. It is simply beautifully put together and the illustrations are amazing, both the black and white images in the text and the full colour plates. The stories are wonderful tales most of which I'd not heard before. I liked the fact that the first one starts with a girl going on a quest to free her would be husband (instead of the boy rescuing the maiden as per normal). There are some lovely themes in this book and some interesting cultural differences to the fairy tales I'm used to reading. I loved the evil trolls, the fact that witches could be helpful, and that random people would help you on your way and everything has to happen three times. I would very very highly recommend this book. It's simply gorgeous.

    The tale itself is pretty classic, but what really makes this telling of that old tale is the gorgeous illustrations, and the details the artist uses to lavishly envision the various scenes through the book.

  7. says:

    An less popular fairy tale, but still familiar. I wish that the writing had been as beautiful as the illustrations.

  8. says:

    A uniquely and beautifully illustrated translation of one of my favorite fairytales.

    Brilliance. Pure and simple.

  9. says:

    A lovely older translation of the fairy tale, not too mushy or sanitized. The heroine is honorable rather than infatuated, expressing her determination to rescue her husband in terms of keeping her promise rather than finding her true love.

    The illustrations are very pretty, if not 100% in line with the text (for instance, she is described as the youngest, but appears much older than several of her siblings, who are shown as children). I found this image particularly interesting:


    I guess there is no realistic way to make a strange man standing over a girl's bed whilst she sleeps unawares not at least slightly creepy!

  10. says:

    It's strange, but the reviews that show up under this title seem to be about a variety of different books. The one I'm commenting on is a compilation of Norwegian (Scandinavian?) folk tales. The stories get repetitive after a while - there are quite a few common themes that show up again and again (and again!). The real reason to get this book is to pore over the wonderful luxurious color illustrations by Kay Nielsen. If you are an artist of any variety, you will be inspired!
