A multitude of supernatural beings inhabit the deep dark forests, still lakes and vast mountain ranges of Scandinavia. When someone mysteriously vanishes, when the milk curdles overnight, strange noises come from the attic or an inexplicable illness strikes, then it is whispered that the Invisible, or the Fair Folk, are at work. This richly-illustrated book by Johan Egerkrantz explores the best of Scandinavian folklore and features Neck, the music- making water spirit, Mara, the bringer of nightmares, Huldra, the seductress of the forest, tomtar, mylings, and many more. For all ages.
