Review: Scandinavian Folk & Fairy Tales: Tales From Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland & Iceland

User Review  - Robert Costic - Goodreads

This makes a good reference book. but I don't see it as something to read cover to cover. There are a huge number of tales, and with the exception of a few by Andersen they are told in the vernacular, which can grow tiring after a while. Read full review
