Where Is Turnip Troll,
and Other Stories from Lapland


With eleven children in the Troll family -
not to mention a dog, a horse, some cats
and a pet reindeer - even everyday life is
an adventure!

Come along with the Troll children as they
enjoy nature, celebrate holidays, make new
friends, and learn about life! Spend a year
in Lapland with Turnip, Tick-Tack and the
other Troll children  during the darkles
 nights  of summer, when the sun floats
above the horizon at midnight, and the

long winter nights, when the frost tightens
its grip and the northern lights dance
across the sky. Life on the other side of
the Arctic Circle awaits you!

Ten stories, ten adventures - one for each
child in the Troll family (Turnip and Ticklish,
the two smallest children, share the starring
role in the first story):

Where Is Turnip Troll?

A Bevy of Easter Witches and Their Cat

The May Day Balloons

The Girl-King

Midsummer

The Dream of Wooden Horses

The Dancing Haystacks

The Old Wooden Bucket

Both children and adults will enjoy these
stories. Learn about Finnish culture and
the unspoiled nature of Lapland!
