Synopsis

Tales of the Mushroom Folk by Signe Aspelin

The mushroom folk are waking up from their winter sleep and emerging into the sunshine. Each family has its own characteristics and we get to know them well in these charming little tales. Meet the golden Coral Mushrooms, the bumpy Brain Mushrooms, the pale Parasol Mushrooms, the fat Puffballs, the stinky Stinkhorns and the regal Button Mushrooms. Illustrated in a classic style reminiscent of Elsa Beskow and Sibylle von Olfers, this is a lovely picture book filled with natural detail of the woods and meadows where the mushroom folk live.

Reviews

'This book was first published in 1909! It is a rather stunning introduction to different kinds of mushrooms that includes the kind of folks who represent these mushrooms and what they do during the day. The illustrations are wonderfully done and the book is nothing short of fascinating.' --Youth Services Book Review 'Illustrated in a classic style reminiscent of Elsa Beskow and Sibylle von Olfers, Tales of the Mushroom Folk is a lovely picture book filled with natural detail of the woods and meadows where the mushroom folk live. Enthusiastically recommended, Tales of the Mushroom Folk will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to family, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections for children.'

'Tales of the Mushroom Folk provides a fun story of Stinkhorns, Button Mushrooms, and more, and comes from a Swedish book illustrator who designed books from 1881-1961. Full-page, gorgeous intricate color drawings a story of the Brain Mushroom family who lives deep in a forest. The beautiful saga of different mushroom folk and their environments and interactions makes for a fun story that all ages will appreciate - especially adults who choose it for read-aloud because of its whimsical characters and Victorian-looking fantasy drawings.'
