“The d’Aulaires have…created magical, luminous illustrations that capture the humor of this Norwegian folk tale.” –School Library Journal

"Another standard from the Caldecott Award–winning d’Aulaires, The Terrible Troll-Bird (also first published in 1955), tells how a group of Norwegian villagers defeated the titular avian (effectively a huge rooster intent on stealing livestock) and its owners, a pair of nasty trolls." –Publishers Weekly

“The d’Aulaires were, of course, the singularly gifted author-illustrators, creators, by the score, of timeless children’s books…a number of their books…are still in print, classics that make for perfect gifts each and every year.” –Smithsonian Magazine
