School Library Journal, Starred
The intimate and chatty tone of the text...encourages confidence in the teller's veracity and repeated reading of the collection.
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
The tales of mysterious Northern European creatures inspire enchanting scratchboard illustration in a folk-tradition.
These small, delightful tales are fabulously illustrated...it's very easy to see elves, gnomes, and dwarves being comfortable in such places.
Professional storyteller Lunge-Larsen presents eight short tales, retold or intevented, featuring magical creatures that lurk just out of sight...Krommes provides handsome borders and stylized full-page illustrations that give this gathering a suitably folktale feel.
