This week's fairytale was Soria Moria Castle.
I'd never heard of this one before so had no idea what to expect when I started reading. It turned out to be filled magnificent castles and enchanted objects (and multi-headed trolls!)
I created two illustrations for this one...
The three castles amongst the rolling hillside. The number of flags on the top of each castle represents the troll inhabiting it (and the number of heads he has!)
This one is a pattern made up of all the objects and spells that Halvor uses throughout the story:
The sword that kills the trolls, the drink that gives him the strength to do so, the ring that takes him home, the boots that help him walk, and the wind and moon that guide him on his way.
