Norwegian Folktales (1982) Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe

Norwegian FolktalesNorwegian Folk and Fairy tales with illustrations from the original collection. Wonderful with lots of tales that I had not before read. I noticed that there are quite a lot of trolls in this collection--more than I had come across before, so I am curious as to whether the Norwegians have a special affinity for trolls, or if this was something just common to the stories.
