A selection of Norwegian folktales chosen by Sigrid Undset, True and Untrue and Other Norse Tales is based on the classic folklore collected by Pieter Christian Asbju8rnsen and Ju8rgen Moe. These wonderful stories tell of worlds similar to our own, worlds with love and hate, sorrow and joy, humor and pathos. Beginning with brothers named True and Untrue, the book takes readers through tales of princes and princesses, giants and trolls, husbands and wives, and a castle that is "East o' the Sun and West o' the Moon."Strikingly illustrated by Frederick T. Chapman while under fire in Italy during the Second World War and with a remarkable foreword by Undset, True and Untrue and Other Norse Tales has a story for everyone.

"Delightful. The old Norse magic of trolls . . . is here, a native magic. . . . There is an interesting male counterpart of Cinderella in the Ashlad and other creations American children will be charmed to meet." -Eudora Welty, New York Times "Children will love this book. Its foreword should make it a 'must' book in any courses that are given on folklore or the literature of story telling." -Saturday Review of Literature
