A girl travels east of the sun and west of the moon to free her beloved prince from a magic spell. Norwegian folktale, EAST O' THE SUN AND WEST O' THE MOON is the romantic story of a bewitched prince and the determined lassie who loves him. It has everything a classic epic tale should have: rags and riches, hags and heroism, magic and mystery, a curse and a quest, wicked trolls, a shape-shifting bear, and finally, a happy ending. Kate Greenaway Medalist P.J. Lynch has created a luminous backdrop worthy of this grand adventure, transporting readers to a world of fantasy and imagination

Rasmus Kristian Rask (1787-1832) did not occupy himself with historical linguistics alone as a comparativist, but also with
