[Johan Bauer]( was a Swedish artist born in 1882. He drowned on a regular ferry trip when he was only 36 a long with his family. He painted for a Swedish book series called "Among Elfs and Trolls" (I did a direct translation from Swedish there) that started out in 1907.

He did several paintings. These are my fav ones:

Heading out to see the world

Mountain troll brings home the loot

Sad girl outside the troll cave

Here is the biggest list of his paintings that I could find, but it is almost overwhelming to see them all lined up. They are so magical and prodigious when separated. If you ever visit Sweden and head down crowded city streets, you will see some traces of his art here and there in the tourist shops. His presence in the Swedish culture heritage is forever accepted.

Edit: I'm really happy for all the Bauer fans out there. Also, there seems to be a lot of cool parents having Bauer posters above beds!

Edit 2: Here's a sample from the book "Det bästa ur Bland tomtar och troll : vår mest älskade sagoskatt". Translates to "The best from Among Hobs and Trolls: Our most beloved story treasure" (Thanks to Bo87)

Edit 3: Here is a John Bauer book in English. (Thanks to sweeneh)

Maybe Yes, Maybe No (LINK)

by Dan Barker

In today's media-flooded world, there is no way to control all of the information, claims, and enticements that reach young people. The best thing to do is arm them with the sword of critical thinking.

Maybe Yes, Maybe No is a charming introduction to self-confidence and self-reliance. The book's ten-year-old heroine, Andrea, is always asking questions because she knows "you should prove the truth of a strange story before you believe it."

"Check it out. Repeat the experiment. Try to prove it wrong. It has to make sense." writes Barker, as he assures young readers that they are fully capable of figuring out what to believe, and of knowing when there just isn't enough information to decide. "You can do it your own way. If you are a good skeptic you will know how to think for yourself."

Another book is "Me & Dog" by Gene Weingarten.

u/jmk816 · 6 pointsr/suggestmeabook

Philip Pullman's series, His Dark Materials is perfect for that age.

Pullman also wrote books about a female detective in the Victorian era in England that are great. But I think the Dark Materials are probably closer to the Hunger Games experience with strong female characters, adventure and excitement.

I also used to read Juniper and Wise Child over and over as a kid. Really engaging and well written. There is magic in the book, but not in a silly way. It's based on Celtic healing and religion so it's not like dragons and fantasy magic. Fits again with the strong female characters.

It also looks like there is a third book, but I never read it!

u/what_a_cat_astrophe · 6 pointsr/theydidthemath

There are technically 11 wizarding schools worldwide! There's all this background lore not directly mentioned in the series, but in the other littler stories like Tales of Beetle & The Bard (the children's book left to Hermione by Dumbledore that contained the story about the Deathly Hollows).

u/Bookworm57 · 6 pointsr/breakingmom

That book is permanently associated with two others in my head; we read them all at a bookstore on vacation, and ended up buying the other two but not that one. They all had an awesome feminist bent, so perhaps you will like the other two:

Interstellar Cinderella

And Ninja Red Riding Hood

Rosie Revere, Engineer was also read that day, I didn't love the art as much, but it is a fun read!

u/kecker · 6 pointsr/JUSTNOFAMILY

When my niece was born, the first of the grandchildren, I made it a point that once a month I sent my sister and BIL an "inappropriate" kids book. This was on the list, although my favorite is "K is for Knifeball", as even I thought this one went a little too far.

So other suggestions for you:

The Taking Tree

Slavic Wheel of the Year

I think this is mainly polish. My Ukranian friend gave me these correspondences:

Jare Gody = Velykden (sort of like Easter, but with a folk twist)

Dziady = Holy Trinity Day or we aslo do Maslenitsa (I think these are different dates)

Kupala Night – same across the border – love this one, my fav!

Plony or Dożynki = Obzhynki (not so popular J) I don’t know much about it

Szczodre Gody = Sviata Vecheria (the night before Christmas when devil comes to visit a witch in the village :)

I know you said not russian, but these herbs were used throughout eastern europe.

A Russian Herbal (book)

Baba Yaga

This also says Russian, but these fairy tales are generally Finno-Ugric

u/HappyTodayIndeed · 4 pointsr/raisedbyborderlines

I used to read a collection of Russian fairly tales by a famous Russian illustrator when I was a kid, hiding from the grownups while visiting a great-aunt. Most (or all?) of them included Baba Yaga, the evil witch who had metal teeth for eating naughty children, "like others eat chickens." My favorite part was the illustrations, because they are gorgeous. Baba Yaga scared the crap out of me, but I was comforted by the stories because there were always spells or some other magic to combat her evil, wielded by a brave protagonist. I guess we all know why that resonated...

I am pretty sure it was this one, if my memory holds, and I see the first story in this book is the one mentioned in the OP. If you look inside the book online you can see some of the illustrations:

u/BigBearKitty · 4 pointsr/witchcraft

Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries by Walter Evans-Wentz, who was a fascinating character in his own right.

Examines the beliefs in the Celtic regions of Wales, Ireland, Scotland, Isle of Man, Cornwall and Britanny in regards to the fey at the very beginning of the 20th c.

Here's the table of contents:

The book is widely available online: the amazon cite includes a free version on kindle, project gutenberg also has it online.

It's a classic.

If you want a compendium of little people, fairies, gnomes etc. A Field Guide to the Little People is wonderful.

Katharine Brigg's An Encyclopedia of Fairies: Hobgoblins, Brownies, Bogies, & Other Supernatural Creatures is another classic.

You must read at least one of R.J. Stewart's books on the subject of faery healing.

It's the weekend already!?

There is the most excellent library book sale this afternoon, but before that goes down, I am dogsitting Baby Puppy and must get caught up on laundry (still in a heap from Arkansas), drywall, and NaNoWriMo. I am cheating again this year by adding to an existing project, but I am forcing myself to close gaps and write alternate subplots so it's Productive. I am, of course, behind word count because of a late start, but I'm kind of getting caught up. I love word sprints. They make me work through my frustration.

Also got a chance to blow through some good books instead of slogging through ones I don't like... Cinder was an android/Sailor Moon Cinderella mashup, and Tin Star (free preview) is Titan A.E. + religious cult. And the most recent Attack on Titan manga came out this week, so there's that too.

u/ExpectDeer · 3 pointsr/Fantasy

Congrats on your daughter! I have a nine year old myself and she loves fantasy and books in general.

I started her young with picture books of which there are fabulous ones with strong female characters.

Rosie Revere, Engineer - not fantasy per se, but the females are empowering. There's a whole series of books about girls in STEM roles from the same authors.

Interstellar Cinderella - Cinderella is a rocket engineer who fixes the prince's ship. She also declines his invitation to marry because she only just met him.

The Princess and the Pony tired of getting sweaters for her birthday, she asks for a real WARRIOR horse and instead gets a chubby little pony. She enters the annual brawl anyways. Endearing, funny, and pokes fun at gender stereotyping.

And for when she's a bit older and can sit still to listen for longer stretches, The Secret World of Og is a great read.

>The series follows the five Berton children, Penny, Pamela, Peter, Patsy, and baby Paul (better-known as “The Pollywog”) as they discover and explore a vast,mysterious world of caverns and rivers hidden beneath a trapdoor in the floor of their clubhouse.

The female characters are strong, unique, and self-sufficient. Not to mention it's a clever and well-written story!

Anyways, I have more I could suggest but you're already under a pile of excellent suggestions. Congrats again!

u/xamueljones · 3 pointsr/rational

How about Augie and the Green Knight?

It was a Kickstarter project to explicitly write rationalist fiction for young children.

u/FeranKnight · 3 pointsr/Fantasy

Since he likes making his own stories, Wizards of the Coast published a book about dragons and one about monsters from the D&D game that read like a kids' non-fiction catalog. It sounds like he has a love of fantasy and creativity that lend well to roleplaying games when he gets older. For someone who doesn't enjoy reading there is a payoff when you get to play a game if you read the book.

A Practical Guide to Monsters
A Practical Guide to Dragons

After looking this up, I found more Practical Guides from WotC. Keep looking if you are interested.

u/daft_inquisitor · 3 pointsr/Guildwars2

They made a small one of these for D&D, and it was pretty epic. Less than fifty pages IIRC, but a tall hardback book that's just lore about mythical creatures. I can't remember what it was called, but there was a chimera on the cover.

EDIT: I was able to find it, but it actually wasn't a D&D book, though it fits the structure well.

A Practical Guide To Monsters.

u/Musannaf · 2 pointsr/whatsthatbook

Something along these lines - Russian Fairy Tales, with rich illustrations?

If this isn't the one, check Raduga Publishers' and Mir Publishers' Russian folk tales catalogues. These folktales were translated in English and numerous other Indian languages, catering to the Indian audience as part of the Indo-Soviet cultural exchange back in the day.

u/obie_wankenobie · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/sparklytomato · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

These are quite old, but my absolutely favorite books when I was a teen were Wise Child and Juniper by Monica Furlong. I still read them from time to time; they have a lot of great life lessons. I've been looking and it doesn't look like there's a Spanish translation readily available, though :(

If you're looking for Spanish-language stuff, Carlos Ruiz Zafon (The Shadow of the Wind) used to write young adult novels before he moved on to adult fiction. I haven't gotten around to reading any of them yet, but they're supposed to be really good. I got his book Marina for my nephew a few weeks ago. I don't think his books are especially female-centric, but they don't seem to be particularly male-oriented either.

u/eyl327 · 2 pointsr/harrypotter

I have this one. It is slightly taller than the other two and has very different cover art. It looks like the new purple one matches the original ones a little better (I'm not sure about the size, though. Also, the contents are probably the same as the original, but I'm not 100% sure.

u/chandalowe · 1 pointr/tipofmytongue

Might it have been a volume of Swedish (or international) folk/fairy tales? There's a Swedish folk tale called The Queen's Necklace (or The Queen's Pearl Necklace).

"King Hendrik is cruel and greedy, taxing his people to the point of starvation. His prized possession is a string of 100 pearls, 99 of them flawless and 1 small and imperfect. He is lacking only a queen and orders his nephew, Prince Nils, to find him a perfect bride. Nils returns with Blanzeflor, a lovely and kind young woman willing to marry King Hendrik so that her father won't starve. The king gives her the pearls, warning that the day they are not around her neck will be her last. She finds that she cannot bear to see her people suffer, and one by one the pearls are sent to help them. When they are all gone, Blanzeflor is sentenced to death, but the birds she has cared for and who witnessed her kindness rescue her and destroy the king."

*Edit: the above illustration was for an anthology of Swedish folk tales called Among the Gnomes and Trolls, illustrated by John Bauer.

I really hoped the thumbnail would appear for this post! Come on, NYT gallery ....

Anyhow, though I didn't know who they were until recently, as a child I was instantly drawn to books illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon. I had to have every book I found featuring their art, including novels by Isabel Allende. I loved to read, but I'm sure I read more because of the artists' work. Other favorites I wished were illustrated by the couple — they made characters complex, dignified and multiethnic, overall more like the world I knew than the one reflected by most book covers.

Image Google "Leo and Diane Dillon art" for more excellence.

I've enjoyed thumbing through An Encyclopedia of Fairies for ideas for my world that uses a mix of Celtic and Christian mythology(possibly some Norse later).

This encyclopedia of spirits interested me, but I didn't end up grabbing it because it also focuses on using these spirits and like to do spells and that wasn't what I was interested in.

Frankly, finding any book that compiles legends together will give monsters. For my the afore mentioned world I'm using The Mammoth Book of Celtic Myths and Legends to learn about Celtic mythology and it's creatures.

u/hroafelme · 1 pointr/books

Yeah, it's correct.

I don't really know why it's confusing for you?

Gnome and Trolls is an anthology (A published collection of poems or other pieces of writing.) which was given out each Christmas between 1907-1915.

Tuvstarr (Sagan om älgtjuren Skutt och lilla prinsessan Tuvstarr / The Tale of the Moose Hop and the Little Princess Cotton Grass) was in the 1913 edition.

I guess the problem is finding English prints? There are several in Swedish at least. I'm guessing that people where a lot more interested in the painting itself then the short story.

It seems that does NOT include Tuvstarr and Swedish Fairy Tales is just a re-print of Folk Tales with lower res pictures.

it might be included here, but I'm not sure otherwise I think your best shot is to contact the publisher Bonnier Carlsen and ask them if there is a English print of Tuvstarr

u/MelodicMuppet · 1 pointr/Fantasy

From a young, female protagonist's view are two of my childhood favourites by Monica Furlong: Juniper and the sequel Wise Child. They're a little hard to find these days, but are well-written and there's a third book as well. The first, Juniper, tells the story of a medieval princess who is sent to her slightly odd godmother for an apprenticeship of sorts. I think my love of fibre crafts was fostered by this book, I loved them when I was a similar age.

u/deiseal · 1 pointr/Norse

The Tomten by Astrid Lindgren is a classic young children's book.

Swedish Folk Tales is worth the price alone for Bauer's illustrations. I'd place reading age closer to 10-12, but again, the pictures are lovely. Some of the stories are appropriate for a younger age if you don't mind reading them.

Hey I'm Erin! My favorite book of all time is To Kill a Mockingbird, but for some reason I've never been able to find a kindle version of it. Only the regular book or like essays about it or summaries. Sooo I'll link my second favorite book of all time which is Alice in Wonderland

I would love a kindle because I don't have any type of tablet and I read all my books on my phone. It works, but it is so incredibly small. I would also love to have a kindle to play all my games on and watch Netflix :-) Thanks for the contest!!

If you can get your hands on a copy of Russian Fairy Tales it is, essentially, the Brothers Grimm style collection of russian folklore.

Edit: the Wikipedia entry for the book can also do in a pinch.

I'm referring to this set:

Amazon lumps reviews together on different versions of items. So you'll be looking at a vinyl copy of an album and reviews will be saying their CD arrived scratched, etc.

I haven't read it yet, but this graphic novel about Trickster was mentioned in an interesting documentary I watched.

1.Uzumaki, I haven't read it yet but I have read Junji Ito and now I am really into horror manga.

2. I have the goal of be coming an author and this book is a little indpiration I have read it three times.

3. I have not read this yet but JK Rowling is my ultimate inspiration

A painting of Regular Show meets Adventure Time would be super lovely if I win. :D

Just got my copy in a few weeks ago from amazon, and I've got to say that I really enjoy it. If you haven't read Rydberg's Investigations Into Germanic Mythology then I'd highly recommend it as it would explain a lot of the interpretations. Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with a multitude of Rydberg's conclusions, but he does have some incredible insights that really caught me off-guard.
