      He lives in the castle that lies East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and thither there you ll come, late or never Reading this didn t feel refreshing I thought changing the writer would get me something new And new it was, but not upto extent I would have loved It seems like a very loose mixture of Beauty The Beast and Cinderella Regardless, I liked it even though it s little lengthy for the plot But not a bad read at all And worth reading for fairytale lovers 6 January, 2018

      Dating back to 1910, this nordic tale was translated by Sir George Webbee Dasent In this story, you will find likeness to Beauty and the Beast and also to Cupid and Psyche.In the forest lives a poor couple with many children The youngest daughter is by far the most beautiful As the winds and the snow shake the cottage, bringing additional cold winds, at night a large white bear appears to the peasant and asks for his youngest daughter In return, the peasant and his family will be very rich and w [...]

      What a delightful little fairy tale This is my first time reading this fairy tale classic by Peter Christen Asbjornsen and I was not disappointed I did find myself enjoying it quite a bit I ll be honest, the main heroine got on my nerves At first, I though she was a bit shallow but seeing all the trouble she went to find the prince, it really shows how caring and deep of a character she really is I am in awe at how this fairy tale ended It was beautiful and the message even better To think I was [...]

      An less popular fairy tale, but still familiar I wish that the writing had been as beautiful as the illustrations.

    5. Mel says:

      This book is a reproduction of the one issued in the 1920s with illustrations by Kay Nielson It might possibly be the most beautiful book I own The pages are so thick, they are almost printed on card stock rather than paper It is simply beautifully put together and the illustrations are amazing, both the black and white images in the text and the full colour plates The stories are wonderful tales most of which I d not heard before I liked the fact that the first one starts with a girl going on a [...]

    6. Amani says:

      This is included in the anthology Fairy Tales from Around the World by Andrew Lang.I really enjoyed this story and I see how newer fairy tales may have taken inspiration certain details from this story It gave me Beauty and the Beast vibes as I read it The writing doesn t always flow well, that I blame that on translation than the writer.

    7. Jessika says:

      If you are a fan of fairytales and or a fan of picture books, you NEED to get your hands on a copy of this book as soon as possible I had never read this tale or any of its adaptations before, and it s such a lovely, adventurous, romantic, and fantastical story It instills such a sense of wonder I know I would have loved this as a child As is the case with fairytales, this tale definitely has its dark moments, what between the trolls, the hags, and even the lassie s mother And I particularly ado [...]

    8. Karen Margrethe says:

      I remember as a child, growing up in Scandinavia, hearing the fairy tales gathered in this book With Kay Nielsen s mesmerizing illustrations, you get lost in what seems like an epic yet tragic beautiful fairy tale universe which represents values of a lost time.The themes with the humble animals and wonders of the woods, trolls and other fantastic creatures captivate a feeling of balance and power in nature That combined with the theme of the loved one you will seek and fight for, makes a powerf [...]

    9. Miriam says:

      A lovely older translation of the fairy tale, not too mushy or sanitized The heroine is honorable rather than infatuated, expressing her determination to rescue her husband in terms of keeping her promise rather than finding her true love The illustrations are very pretty, if not 100% in line with the text for instance, she is described as the youngest, but appears much older than several of her siblings, who are shown as children I found this image particularly interesting I guess there is no r [...]

    10. Hannah says:

      I am perfectly in love with this book Beautiful and bizarre illustrations by Kay Nielsen, coupled with the Scandinavian folk tales of Asbjornsen and Moe make this a wonderful piece for the bookshelf.

    11. Fairoozs says:

      3.5 stars I don t think I would have liked it this much if I had read it at any other time Both the fairy tale and concept were new, and this is the first time I ve read an original folklore, so undoubtedly it appealed to me It was quite a refreshing read , really.

    12. Syeda says:

      East o the Sun and West o the Moon is a Norwegian folktale The reader can easily identify the similarities in this tale with the famous folklore Beauty and the Beast A young girl sacrifices for her poor family by agreeing to live with a bear in an enchanted castle and in return, the bear promises to make the family rich He takes off his bear form and sleeps as a man at night but she is not allowed to light the candle She feels homesick in the castle and goes to visit her family Her mother insist [...]

    13. Torzilla says:

      I absolutely adore this tale and will certainly buy the book for my child someday I highly recommend reading this, whether you are a child or an adult Fair warning the trolls look somewhat horrifying.Through beautiful imagery and descriptions, readers follow a young lassie who leaves her family in order to live with a white bear Because the young lassie does not follow his advice, she must traverse all around the world in order to save her prince from his destined bride to be an ugly troll with [...]

    14. Mahala says:

      P J Lynch is one of my favourite illustrators, and this is one of my favourite fairy tales Parts of it sound like Cupid and Psyche, and others like the Russian fairy tale where the girl has to journey to find her lover the falcon East o the Sun is the Celtic version of the tale, and the one with my favourite ending the girl and the prince get on a ship and sail off to have adventures, together this time.What sets this book apart is the illustration P J Lynch and his glowing watercolours create [...]

    15. Marci says:

      Kirkus Reviews writes that this is the best edition of this story available, and I couldn t agree P.J Lynch s watercolor and guache illustrations are perfection He may be my favorite illustrator of all times Lynch actually went to Norway to the National Gallery there to study the scenery and costumes of the story s time The story itself is a bit of a Scandanavian Beauty and the Beast which is my favorite fairy tale Because P.J Lynch lives in Ireland, some of his books are hard to find But if yo [...]

    16. Bdalton says:

      This beautifully illustrated Norwegian tale reminds one of Beauty and the Beast and Cupid and Psyche It speaks of long road back from betrayal Sometimes people betray the ones who have treated them the best There is a failure to see the betrayed as they truly are Once they are fully glimpsed, it is too late The betrayal exacts a huge penalty on both the wronged party and the one who makes the mistake In the end, redemption is possible only after a long, almost impossible struggle and if true lov [...]

      My sweet friend Cecilia gave this book to me and it is truly nothing short of magical Fairy tales and ghost stories, princess wooing and changelings, told by a narrator traveling from town to town collecting the stories, and sometimes comparing them there were chapters with multiple fairy wedding festivities , as well as setting the scene by describing the chilly and lush Scandanavian countryside he travels through A really great, gentle, and for someone who didn t read it as a child, example of [...]

      Me gust mucho m s que los otros Me pareci una mezcla del mito de Cupido y la chica esa que no ten a que mirarlo, mezclado con la Bella y la Bestia.No s cu l fue primero si el huevo o la gallina, pero el cuento tiene su encanto, y el hecho de que sea un oso y haya nieve me conquist.La chica no puede evitar hacer tonter as, cosa que me sac , y no se rindi en su empe o de buscar al pr ncipe, cosa que me sorprendi No veo la hora de leer sus retelling Me gusta la idea 3

    19. Cate Linden says:

      I ve always found Kay Nielsen s illustrations captivating, so I was delighted to find this book a couple of years ago at an out of the way bookshop After gazing at it on my shelf for quite some time, I finally brought it down and read it cover to cover while sick in bed This is a gorgeous book, from the cloth cover to the typeface to Nielsen s inimitable illustrations I had never read these Norwegian fairy tales before, and I found them amusing, well paced, and above all, magical In keeping with [...]

    20. Shealtiel says:

      This book is a Scandanavian twist on Beauty and the Beast I would use it to teach differences in familiar fairy tales across cultures It shows what another culture values It starts out with a poor farming family, that becomes rich by giving their youngest, most beautiful daughter to a white bear I think it could also be used to teach about directions as she goes to the west, east, north, and south winds for help There are several items in this book that are unique to historical Scandinavian cult [...]

    21. Gilded Locks says:

      Nielsen s illustrations in this are, of course, breathtaking The fairy tales are certainly entertaining, but can be at times rather convoluted and odd what you d expect, considering their age, and a wonderful insight into fairy tales of a different time period Also, the book itself is beautiful thick, smooth paper, innumerable black and white illustrations in addition to the gorgeous color plates even someone unfamiliar with book construction can tell that they re holding an item of exceptional [...]

    22. Sarah Schanze says:

      Interesting collection of fairy tales Probably the best one was the titular story, East of the Sun and West of the Moon The others were good, but repetitive and typical fairy tale fare There weren t many stories that had a girl protagonist, and one of them was the only story in here I absolutely hated The Lassie and her Godmother That had the worst ending, and the only moral I can think it had was if you re beautiful and mute, good things will happen to you Very bad message for little girls Not [...]

    23. Majo says:

      Este cuento es hermoso Tiene mucho m s encanto que todos los otros, me ha gustado much ismo La princesa no se parece en nada a las de los cuentos anteriores, esta comete errores pero trata de enmendarlos, se embarca en una aventura para salvar a su amado Y si bien se habla de insta love cuando ella ve por primera vez al princ pe, en realidad lleva bastante tiempo viviendo con el oso, as que no creo poder considerarlo uno de los r diculos romances instantaneos.

    24. Tricia says:

      It s strange, but the reviews that show up under this title seem to be about a variety of different books The one I m commenting on is a compilation of Norwegian Scandinavian folk tales The stories get repetitive after a while there are quite a few common themes that show up again and again and again The real reason to get this book is to pore over the wonderful luxurious color illustrations by Kay Nielsen If you are an artist of any variety, you will be inspired

      Free download available at Project Gutenberg.He too saw the image in the water but he looked up at once, and became aware of the lovely Lassie who sate there up in the tree.

      The first book I bought my daughter I think she was, ooh, 12 days old at the time.

    27. Amelia says:

      This is my favorite fairy tale The illustrations are the best in this one Oh my gosh I love this book

    28. Sara Elkington says:

      My dad used to read this to me before bed each night I still remember exactly how he said, East of the sun and west of the moooooon.

    29. Maren Prestegaard says:

      I read the Dasent translation with PJ Lynch illustrating A magical fairy tale from yesteryear though rather unedited for my 6 yo Had to take a few creative detours while storytelling.

    30. Chris says:

      What can you say, besides read this book for the Norse version of several tales Including one of the best versions of Beauty and the Beast ever
