Description
What monster has been terrorizing the creatures of the forest? Ola and his sisters Lina, Sina, and Trina find out, in this lively 1976 folktale for all ages from Caldecott Medalists Ingri & Edgar Parin d'Aulaire (who also gave us D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths and D'Aulaires' Book of Trolls). The terrible troll-bird is actually a giant rooster (a rather hilarious monster, to be sure), who has his hungry eye on poor old Blakken the carthorse. After the intrepid siblings come to the rescue, the whole village turns out for a fantastic chicken feast—until the mountain trolls come looking for their prized rooster. The large-format book beautifully reproduces the D'Aulaires' lively lithographic drawings in color and black and white.
