Recommendations from our site
A collection of 26 traditional tales retold and exquisitely illustrated by Pirkko-Liisa Surojegin, a Finnish illustrator known for her expressive and delicate style. The stories all feature animals reflecting human behaviours, several of them with the cunning fox taking advantage of the hard-working bear. With large font and full-page illustrations, these lively stories are perfect for newly confident readers to read by themselves, but Nordic Animal Tales is also a lovely book to read aloud with younger children.
