Synopsis

Ola by Ingri D'Aulaire, Edgar Parin D'Aulaire

This delightfully illustrated book is the enchanting story of a dauntless Norwegian boy who goes skiing one day and has many unusual adventures before returning home. He meets new friends, joins a merry wedding party, encounters a howling dragon, and learns bits of folklore from fishermen in the far north while pulling codfish from the icy waters.
