Helga's Dowry: A Troll Love Story
by Tomie dePaola

From best-selling author and illustrator Tomie dePaola comes this folktale of a determined and self-reliant troll learning the importance of being true to yourself.

Helga, a troll, must somehow acquire a dowry with which to marry or, by the god Odin’s command, be doomed to wander the earth forever. After Lars, her true love, is tempted away from her side by a rich dowry, Helga decides to go and earn a dowry of her own! Her cleverness, humor, and insight into people help her stand on her own two feet and be loved for who she is.
