Tale of a Troll is a storybook for readers of all ages, who have fallen in love with Lapland and Lappish mythology. It is the literary debut of Janette Backman, an artist living in Rovaniemi. A small troll boy, Halti, leaves his home and heads for the wide world. He meets a storytelling bear, an old pike in a forest pond, flies with an owl and catches a glimpse of a magical Firefox. The journey wouldn’t be complete without his good friend Falav the Reindeer. Together they face adventures – and sometimes mischief. Halti also meets someone special - a troll girl Freya, who he carries in his heart wherever he goes.
